Our approach to learning
The Academy operates a two week (25 hours per week, 50 hours per cycle) timetable with five one- hour lessons per day. All the core and foundation subjects that form the National Curriculum are taught in Year 9. In Year 9, students are placed in teaching groups according to a combination of factors including attainment in English, Mathematics and Science, learning styles and curriculum choices. During Year 9 a booklet is published with details of all the courses that will be available in Key Stage Four (Years 10 and 11).
