At Everest Community Academy we offer a broad and balanced curriculum and as a school encourage each student’s particular abilities to ensure that no child slips through the net. The school’s ethos is simple - our students are at the heart of everything we do and we truly believe that every child can achieve.
This covers years 7 & 8 with students choosing their GCSE pathway at the end of year 8 so that they are ready to embark on their GCSEs from year 9. This change in our curriculum may differ from other local schools but we feel has significant long term benefits on the progress and attainment of our students.
Core subjects in KS3 are English, Mathematics & Science.
Subjects also studied Art, Geography, RE, History, Food Technology, PE, Computing, Dance, Drama, French, German, Spanish, Triple science.
Students are guided through the pathways process during year 8. There are some subjects that are compulsory and these are contained in the core block.
Core subjects are: English, Mathematics, Science, RS and either BTEC Sport or Health & Social Care.
The remainder of curriculum time is individual and personalised; students get four option choices. During the options process students are given bespoke guidance on which pathway best suites them. Pathways vary between individuals, year groups and are dependent on the cohort.
Pathways subjects: Computing, History, Geography, 3D Design, Food Technology, Dance, Drama, Photography, French, German, Spanish, Triple Science, Fine Art.
