What will be studied?

Our Year 7 and Year 8 Schemes of Learning focus on building students’ key skills in specific areas and applying these to solve a range of related problems. The level of challenge is high and learning is modelled using a concrete/pictorial/abstract approach to help students develop understanding. Students are organised into broad bands based on prior attainment and teacher assessment. The Year 9 scheme of learning builds on the Year 7-8 content and students will consolidate and extend this understanding as well as encountering some new concepts and topics.
