Curriculum Overview 2019-2020

At Six Villages, we offer a broad, balanced and rewarding learning experience, which gives all pupils the opportunity to work with engaging and supportive staff to ensure they reach their potential. 

All pupils have the opportunity to study the EBacc programme comprising the core academic subjects of English, Mathematics, History or Geography, the Sciences and a language. 

Years 7 and 8

All pupils study English, Mathematics, Science, French, History, Geography, Religous Studies, Music, Drama, Art, Technology, Personal, Social, Health & Emotional Education (PSHE) and Physical Education. To maximise their performance in examinable subjects, pupils choose their Key Stage 4 GCSE options at the end of Year 8.

Year 9 - GCSE Foundation Year

Starting GCSEs in Year 9 allows pupils to develop the key skills to enable success in their examinations. In Year 8, full guidance is given to parents/carers and pupils at an option evening held during the Spring term. This helps us to design a Key Stage 4 curriculum that reflects the interests and abilities of the year group.

Years 10 & 11 - Key Stage 4

Our GCSE curriculum consists of the compulsory subject of English, Maths, Science and PE, as well as at least one Humanities subject and either French or Spanish. Pupils can then choose from a range of other subjects including Art & Design, Design & Technology, Drama, Food Preparation & Nutrition, Music and Religious Studies.
