Our Curriculum Plan
Key Stage 3 (Year 7-9)
We believe in teaching a broad and balanced curriculum at Key Stage 3, and students getting the chance to explore a vast range of subjects with and beyond the National Curriculum.
We invest a significant amount of time in core subjects and subjects which ultimately form part of the BTEC offer, but equally value time spent in the Arts and technical subject to ensure that all students have a broad and balanced curriculum experience.
The hours spent in each subject vary slightly in Years 7-9, so below is a summary of the curriculum offer and how long students spend in each subject.
This curriculum is well-planned and sequenced, ensuring that there is an encompassing of all elements of the National Curriculum. It is underpinned by our Life Skills curriculum in which key elements of PSHE, citizenship and British Values are delivered to ensure that all students at Colton Hills have access to a rounded educational experience that supports all of our communities.
