Key Stage 3 (KS3)
In Years 7-8 we work to build the foundation knowledge, understanding and skills which will lead to personal and academic success. Please click on the KS3 Curriculum Map to access full information.
Key Stage 4 (KS4)
In Years 9, 10 and 11 students will study a core curriculum of English Language and English Literature, Mathematics, Science, Geography, History and a modern foreign language. The language studied will be either French or Spanish (depending on what has been studied at KS3) and students are able to study both History and Geography in Year 9. In addition to the core curriculum students are required to study four further subjects and may choose these from the following options..
Option subjects on offer are: Art, Business Studies, Computer Science, Drama, Food Preparation and Nutrition, Geography, History, Media, Music, PE, DT: Product Design, Religious Studies, Sociology and DT: Textiles. In some cases students will take one fewer option in order to provide additional support for literacy and numeracy or other forms of intervention to overcome barriers to learning. We have relationships with alternative providers and some students will take up a college placement or other work-related learning experience.
Key Stage 5 (KS5)
Every Year 12 student embarks on a Personalised Learning Programme after choosing 3 or 4 A Levels (or a mix of BTEC and 1 or 2 A Levels) for the two year duration in Rosebery Sixth Form. This is the Core of a student’s curriculum. Assistance is provided in making these choices during the Sixth Form Interviews held by Senior Staff members by December of Year 11.
A rich and diverse programme of Personal Development Education (PDE) is delivered to all Year 12 and 13 students every other Wednesday afternoon. This is supported by daily Form Periods and a weekly Assembly. Themes for PDE include: Teenage Mental Health, Self Defence, University Finance, Health & Fitness and Radicalisation.
Beyond this, our Sixth Form offers extra-curricular activities such as; Gold Duke of Edinburgh Award, Young Enterprise, Community Sports Leaders Award, School Productions, Sports Teams, Music groups for Bands, Orchestra and Choir etc. and we are also fortunate to offer locations for quiet study in our Sixth Form Centre, as well as a newly refurbished Coffee Bar and Common Room for relaxation and social activity.
