Curriculum Overview

Curriculum time is time spent in subject lessons. Students spend different amounts of time in different subjects, for example more time is spent in the core subjects of English, Maths and Science. The time changes as students make their choices for GCSE / BTEC subjects to study in Y9-Y11.
