Year 1 - Year 9 (aged 5–14)
Our school will follow the English National Curriculum from year 1 to Year 9 (aged 5–14). The English National Curriculum is distinguished by highly prescriptive Programmes of Study that specify subject knowledge, skills and concepts at each age level for the core subjects of English, Mathematics, and Science and for foundation subjects such as Art and Design, Computing, Design Technology, Foreign Language, Music and Physical Education.
Rigorous and well-organised, the British curriculum has been designed to give students, parents and teachers a clear overview of progress at every educational stage. A detailed framework gives learners an easy-to-navigate map to help them identify, work towards and achieve their academic goals.

Year 10 – Year 11 (aged 14-16)
Key Stage four covers Years 10 – Year 11 (aged 14-16). During this Key Stage, students will study for the attainment of the Cambridge IGCSE qualification.
