Years 7, 8 and 9

Two Week Timetable
From September 2017 we will be operating a two week timetable along with a revised daily structure. Find out more here.
Year Seven
Teaching classes are based mainly in mixed ability tutor groups of approximately 26 students for most subjects in Year 7.  Setting according to ability takes place in some subjects before the end of Year 7.  
Subject Number of Units Per Week
English 4
Mathematics 4
Science 4
Humanities 3
Modern Foreign Languages 2
Computer Science 1
Physical Education 2
Art, Design and Technology 3
Music/Drama/Dance 2
Personal, Social and Health Education Collapsed Days

Some of these subject areas may be unfamiliar to parents and during the year we hold curriculum evenings when you will be invited to experience the same learning opportunities as your son/daughter.  Subject staff are available to answer questions in an effort to provide you with a full picture of what happens in the classroom. These evenings have proved very popular with parents with a few surprises about how teaching has changed for the better!

Years Eight and Nine
The time given to subjects changes slightly from that allocated in Year 7 due to a variety of pressures on the Curriculum. The use of setting and banding arrangements for teaching classes in a number of subject areas increases.
