Students in Band A (Achievement) will follow the programme above in all subjects (except ICT) for three years (Key Stage 3) before moving on to the Key Stage 4 GCSE and BTEC courses in Year 10.

Students in Band E (Extension) will follow the Key Stage 3 curriculum for two years only in English, Mathematics and Science, before embarking on the GCSE courses in these subjects at the start of Year 9. All other subjects (except ICT) will be taught over 3 years as in Band A.
