Curriculum information for each subject can be accessed via the ‘Subjects’ link below. We have created half-termly breakdowns of subject content for each subject via a series of curriculum booklets for each year group. Please see below for Year 7-11:
Information on subjects studied at KS4 ( Year 10 and Year 11) can be found in the Pathways section and for the sixth form, in the Sixth form section of the website.
Students in Year 7 are taught in mixed ability form classes in all subjects except for Maths and French/Spanish. Decisions around setting are made in the autumn term and are subject to regular review.
Students in Year 8 and Year 9 are taught in mixed ability form classes except for Maths, Science and French/Spanish
Students in Year 10 and Year 11 are setted in Maths and Science only. Mixed ability groups run across all subjects in the sixth form.
We operate a 2 week timetable at Bellerive. Each week of the academic year is referred to as either week A or week B. This change has allowed us to make some important curriculum changes and offers us the potential for further flexibility in our future curriculum planning. Parents are asked to support the college in ensuring students are aware which working week it is at any one time and to ensure that students have the correct books and equipment for each working day. Please see below for further information:
Please note that our IT facilities are available to students for independent study from 8am to 4.30pm each day.
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org should you require more information about the curriculum followed by students.
