Glossopdale School

Curriculum

The quality of teaching and learning is our priority. We want our students to gain satisfaction through hard work and engagement with their studies. We know that a determined focus on excellent progress and grades will take them to Post-16, University and beyond.

We have a flexible personalised curriculum which provides for the needs of all our students. Traditional GCSE subjects in English, Maths, Sciences, Humanities, Languages, Arts and Technology sit side by side with some more vocational and technical courses in Sport, Performance, Social Sciences, Business and Catering. Targets are set and progress is closely monitored. The curriculum is designed to give every student the best possible chance of leaving Glossopdale School with strong qualifications and high aspirations.

Year 7 to 9 students follow a core curriculum. This includes English, mathematics, science, technology, humanities, art, music, dance, drama, computer science, physical education and a language.

In Year 10 and 11 students have the opportunity to design a curriculum matching their interests and skills. Students can choose purely academic pathways or routes that are work related, such as design technology & catering as well as a range of BTEC subjects such as sport, business studies and health and social care.

Across all subjects, we want students to be excited and enthused, to express themselves confidently and eloquently and to rigorously expect the best academic standards of themselves.
