At South Axholme Academy we aim to offer all students a broad, balanced and rich experience which will equip them to succeed in a rapidly changing world. The Academy works to create conditions in which all students can grow and develop resilience, independence and creativity whilst developing into thoughtful, responsible and informed members of the local, national and international community.
In our curriculum we aim to encourage students to understand the fundamental British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty, and mutual respect and tolerance of people of all faiths, races and cultures. We help students to understand that while different people may hold different views about what is ‘right’ and ‘wrong’, all people living in England are subject to its laws.
The curriculum in Year 7 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 in order to experience a broad and balanced education. In Year 7, students study the following subjects:
English, mathematics, science, French or Spanish, geography, history, religious education, technology (including product design/engineering and food/textiles), computing, music, drama, art, physical education and general studies.
All students will continue to study English, mathematics, science, French or Spanish, geography, history, religious education, technology (including product design/engineering and food/textiles) and physical education. In year 8 students have some flexibility about some of the courses they study.
At the end of Year 8, students take their full options.
Years 9, 10 and 11
Pathways are introduced from Year 9 onwards 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 qualifications to take them on to their next stage whether this is employment, training or Post 16 study. Students and their parents receive support, information and guidance during Year 8 to help ensure that the right students are on the right courses.
