Year 9

Our aim is for the curriculum to allow and support every student to thrive and achieve to their best at a pace appropriate to them. There is additional support to enable those with learning or physical difficulties, which may include a differentiated curriculum.

Mathematics, English, Science and MFL are setted (either in half year or whole year groups); Design and Technology is taught in smaller groups.

Setting and target setting is determined from baseline assessments that we do in school, KS2 assessments, information from primary schools and internal milestone assessments. There is regular assessment of students’ progress and students may change sets as appropriate to support individual need and to achieve potential.
