The number of teaching staff has been enhanced to provide specialist teachers for all subjects of the National Curriculum. This also allows year groups to be further subdivided, where appropriate, into two or more small class sets of between 4 – 7 students.
Due to the varying nature of needs and abilities across different cohorts, classes are occasionally vertically arranged to include a mix of students from Years 7-9 grouped according to need and ability.
For this reason subjects follow a rolling topic cycle which will ensure all students cover the same curriculum content by the end of KS3.
