Curriculum Overviews

Due to curriculum changes, the new curriculum map will be effective from the 2022-2023 academic year for KS3 (Y7/Y8/Y9) groups. However, to avoid a repetition of content, KS4 (Year 10 & 11) will follow the old curriculum map until their GCSES are complete (Y10: 2024. Y11: 2023)
