Overview & Options

Our curriculum has been designed to deliver an exciting and stimulating five year progressive programme. We focus on key skills at Key Stage 3 for two years where we foster a love of learning through a broad and balanced curriculum.

Our Key Stage 4 programme is extended over three years to develop a deeper understanding and mastery of subjects at GCSE level, in order to achieve the highest outcomes and to aspire for every student to reach their potential.

  • All students study English, Mathematics, Science, Religious Studies, Physical Education, French and Technology
  • At Key Stage 3 (Years 7 and 8) students also study History, Geography, Music and Drama
  • At Key Stage 4 (Years 9, 10 and 11), alongside our core subjects, students make a number of option choices from a range of subjects including History, Geography, Additional Sciences, Drama, Music, Examined Physical Education, Psychology, Business and Travel and Tourism.

Our Key Stage 5 provision is delivered alongside our Partners – as part of The East Northamptonshire College (TENC) - The Ferrers School and The Rushden Academy. Our joint provision has the most comprehensive choice of subjects in the County, consisting of twenty nine A Levels plus ten BTEC additional Level 3 courses and four Level 2 post-sixteen options.
