Students follow a unique curriculum experience in which Key Stage 3 is completed by the end of Year 8.
Key Stage Three subjects include English, Maths, Science, Creative Arts, Computing, Design and Technology, Geography, History, Modern Foreign Languages, PE, PSHE and RE.
When students arrive at Thomas Ferens, they are allocated to pathways based on their prior attainment. Students can move pathways as they progress through the Academy. A fast track and a nurture group allow us to challenge the more able and support others appropriately.
The relevance of courses in Key Stage 4 will be guided by the individual needs of the student. Students will combine a range of core subjects with the opportunity to take options which particularly appeal to the individual student.
The vast majority of students will follow pathways leading to the English Baccalaureate portfolio of courses which include GCSE English, Maths, Science, a Modern Foreign Language and either History or Geography. Students will also have the opportunity to opt for vocational subjects. We offer our students an exciting and memorable curriculum which is demonstrated by the range of opportunities which we give to all our learners to develop key skills, self- confidence and self-esteem to prepare them for successful futures.
