Curriculum Years 7 & 8

At Skinners’ Academy, Year 7 & 8 pupils access a range of interesting academic subjects, all enhanced by our enterprise specialism. Key Stage 3 lasts two years with pupils choosing their GCSEs within the spring/summer term of Year 8. This is a year earlier than most schools and gives pupils the chance to get going with subjects they are most interested in from Year 9.
