Fairtrade Fortnight 2020 

 

 

You may be aware that Fairtrade Fortnight is taking place from Feb 24th– 8th March.

 

To raise awareness of Fairtrade during this time Senior pupils will be taking part in a variety of activities in their form groups.  We thought we’d share these resources with parents, so to be able to discuss and share the subject with their children at home.

 

Below you will  find a variety of videos, a quiz, discussions and reading content that is being used in School:

Key Stage 3 (Year 7-9)

We are proud of the academic rigour and breadth of the curriculum offered at Key Stage 3. Small class sizes and the opportunity for our well-qualified subject specialists to develop programs of study allow our pupils to make superb progress.

The overall balance of the curriculum allows each pupil to experience a wide range of subjects. At the same time we place considerable emphasis on the development of skills which will best equip our pupils for success both at school and beyond. We provide a breadth of education on which pupils can build before they start their GCSE course.

In addition to the core subjects of English, Mathematics and Science, pupils follow the National Curriculum with lessons in: Art, Geography, History, ICT, Computer Science, Drama, Modern Foreign Languages (French and Spanish), Music, Physical Education, PSHE and Religious Studies.

Key Stage 4 (Year 10-11)

At Key Stage 4 our aim is to ensure that all pupils study subjects that suit their abilities and aspirations. Pupils are provided with flexibility; both in terms of the choice of subjects and in matching subjects to the needs of individuals, thus enabling a smooth transition to the next stage of their academic journey.

All pupils follow a core curriculum of English, English Literature, Mathematics and Science. Pupils can then choose their options from the table below:

The rich mix of drama, musical productions, sport and extra-curricular activities enriches and builds on all that is achieved by our pupils in the more formal areas of the curriculum, providing our pupils with confidence as well as developing their skills and interests.

In addition, for one lesson a week the timetable is collapsed and given over to pupil enrichment which offers an opportunity for our pupils to enjoy activities that are beyond the confines of the examination curriculum.
