Specialisms - Year eight into year nine

As a school we are committed to engaging our students in a broad and balanced Key Stage 3 Curriculum, which includes a range of creative and technology based subjects.  However, we are also aware of the increased demands of the new GCSE courses and the need to ensure that our pupils are fully prepared to meet these challenges.

To allow pupils the opportunity to continue to explore a range of subjects, whilst building the foundations for Key Stage 4, students in Year 8 select two Creative and Technology Specialisms to study further in Year 9.

Our Creative and Technology Specialisms include

  • Art
  • Computer Science
  • Drama
  • Food Technology
  • ICT
  • Media Studies
  • Music
  • Photography
  • Textiles
  • 3D Design

Students select their Specialisms in the Spring Term of Year 8
