Curriculum The current KS5 offer is made up exclusively of Level 3 courses (mainly A-Levels) apart from opportunities to resit GCSE’s in English and Maths and an Extended Project Qualification. Although students follow a standard timetable for most of the two years, days and periods are suspended on occasions to deliver enrichment activities (e.g. Healthy Living day), interventions (e.g. exam skill sessions), and trial exams. Trips and visits are part of the offer but carefully timed to not disrupt important exam work. As exams approach, revision workshops and coursework catch-up sessions are a regular feature at lunchtimes and after school. The allocation of lessons per year group is shown below.
