Curriculum Year 9

Year 9

In year 9 we provide a curriculum designed not only to develop students’ knowledge and understanding in a range of subjects but also to enable them to develop the skills required to become independent learners throughout the rest of their time in school and beyond. The students are placed in two parallel ability half year groups. The only subjects that set in Year 9 are mathematics, science and French.

We offer the following courses in Year 9: English, mathematics, science, physical, education, IT, French, art, music, geography, history, RE, design & technology.
