The curriculum at Vale of York is key to the development of the whole child. Whilst each child covers subjects as listed below, the essential thread throughout each lesson every day is to stretch, challenge and enthuse each child so as to give their very best and develop a passion for future life.
As a small school, each child is truly known and often individually tailored programmes are developed to maximise a child’s individual potential.
Beyond the classroom pupils experience wider opportunities through taking part in numerous extra curricula activities, enrichment days, community events, school performances and trips both at home and abroad.
The Key Stage 3 curriculum is designed to build on the learning experiences that children had in their primary schools. In addition to learning the specialised subject knowledge required to progress through secondary education, students have the chance to develop learning and thinking skills and subject specific skills. We ensure our Key Stage 3 curriculum allows time for creativity both in individual subjects and across the curriculum while providing a broad and balanced education.
Pathways are introduced at Key Stage 4 to ensure that students continue to follow a broad and balanced curriculum that is suited to their individual needs. We want every student to finish Year 11 with a complete set of Level 2 qualifications to take them on to their next stage whether this is employment, training or Post 16 study. To give all students the greatest chance of success, we offer three pathways and students can opt for the traditional academic route or a more applied or vocational course. In addition to this pupils get the opportunity to study alongside pupils at Manor C E Academy as part of the shared curriculum offer at key stage 4.
