From Year 9 onwards, students can choose to take a vocational pathway which brings to life issues from the health sector. 

Curriculum overview

  • In the spring of Year 8, students choose the options subjects they will take from Year 9 to Year 11. Students and their families are guided through this process through taster lessons, assemblies, our options online guide and a special options information evening. We support all students to choose subjects they will enjoy and which they will succeed in, and which will unlock future opportunities.
  • Years 9-10: Each subject is taught by two lessons each week
  • Year 11: Each subject is taught by three lessons each week for the current cohort.
