Curriculum At Queensmead

queensmead-school-026Our curriculum has been designed to give all students the opportunity to achieve. There is a blend of academic and vocational courses across all Key Stages to give students the combination they require to pursue their chosen career paths. The curriculum is  reviewed annually enabling new courses to be introduced.

There are 25 one hour lessons each week for all students in Years 7 to 11.  To ensure that every student can work at a level and pace appropriate to their ability, some subjects are taught in tiered groups.

There is a weekly rolling programme where students in all year groups receive a curriculum of Personal Development. Its aims are academic, social and personal and include:

  • Supporting the academic curriculum through the development of study and work place skills
  • Successfully inducting the students into critical stages of their social careers
  • Developing a caring and tolerant attitude to others and the community
  • Encouraging the growth of personal identity through a programme of activities which will increase self-awareness and promote self esteem
