Curriculum

King’s Oak Academy aims to offer a broad, balanced curriculum in the Main School.  In the first three years, students will follow common National Curriculum courses.

Curriculum for Years 7 – 9

English, Mathematics, Science, Information Technology, Learning Challenge, History, Geography, Design and Technology, Art, Music, Drama, French, Religious Studies, Physical Education, Personal Development, Citizenship

  • ALL students will have additional opportunities to develop Information Technology skills across the curriculum.
  • Parents who for particular reasons may wish their children to be withdrawn from the more formal and separate elements of Sex Education should write to the Principal.

Curriculum beyond Year 9

In Years 10 and 11 a wide range of GCSEs, BTEC and NVQ examination courses are offered, and students make guided choices to ensure that the National Curriculum is followed.

Courses in Physical Education, Citizenship, Personal Development and Religious Education are also followed by all students.  All students have opportunities to engage in work related learning activities during KS4.

At 16 our students may enter employment, go on to a College for further training or, as a significant percentage do, continue in Years 12 and 13 at King’s Oak Academy as part of the Cabot Learning Federation.  Here students will follow a wide variety of courses including AS/A2 and BTEC qualifications at various levels as preparation for entering University or employment.
