Review of Our Curriculum Offer
We have been looking very closely at the five year ‘learning journey’ that students take and how we can best support them to achieve their full potential in the examinations that they will take at the end of Year 11. All existing schemes of learning have been audited and we have looked carefully at the latest national advice and guidance on best practice for secondary schools.
As a result of our review, we have decided to extend our Key Stage 3 curriculum for an additional year, from the current two-year model to a three-year model. This means that from September 2020, students at The Radclyffe School will follow a Key Stage 3 curriculum in Years 7, 8 and 9 before starting their Key Stage 4 curriculum (involving GCSE and equivalent qualifications) in Years 10 and 11. We believe that this additional year of following the broad range of subjects contained in the Key Stage 3 National Curriculum will provide the most appropriate foundation for success in Years 10 and 11.
