Curriculum Year 9, 10 & 11
At Skinners’ Academy, pupils start working towards their chosen GCSEs in Year 9, which means that pupils have three years as opposed to two in Key Stage 4, which allows pupils to approach Year 9 as a foundation year. Please see below for information about subjects currently available.
All subjects are enhanced by the inclusion of enterprise education, designed to help pupils acquire the skills they need to achieve / be successful in everyday life (such as verbal communication, teamwork, leadership skills and more). In addition, pupils also follow our well-respected programme of Careers, Education, Information, Advice and Guidance (CEIAG) which includes solid up to date information about progression routes, workshops on CV writing and interview skills – as well as access to people in industry, all of which helps our pupils build clarity and confidence when it comes to their future plans.
