The students in Years 7 to 9 generally follow the National Curriculum. This means Year 7 mostly study English History from 1066 to 1500; Year 8 English and European History from 1500 to 1750 and Year 9 English and World History from 1750 to the 20th Century. During the course of their studies, the following trips are undertaken by these year groups to help bring the curriculum to life.
Years 10 and 11 follow a 20th Century GCSE course which takes in international relations between 1900 and 1945, the First World War, the Russian Revolution and Communism to 1941, as well as German History from 1919 to 1939.
The final week of term will be a celebration of well-being through a host of character development activities. The week begins with the senior school sports day on Tuesday, 9 July.
On Wednesday, 10 and Thursday, 11 July, students will take part in a variety of house competitions and activities that will give them an opportunity to enhance a variety of skills such as leadership, teamwork, problem solving, creativeness and resilience through enterprise, drama and STEM activities to name but a few. During these days, students will also be off site taking part in a number of different activities that encompass our school values such as supporting community projects in the surrounding area and taking to the outdoors for some outdoor and adventurous activities. The school year is brought to a close on Friday, 12 July, with our final house competition. Students will need to use all their skills they have been developing throughout the year and during the week for this end of year extravaganza. We can’t tell you too much about the day as it will spoil the surprise!
