Academy Vision links to Curriculum

Our core aim is to support our students in their pursuit of knowledge and wisdom, allowing them to flourish as lifelong learners seeking to love God and serve the community.

Our curriculum is central to this aim and is relevant to the needs of modern day Britain – balancing faith and academic rigour with a realistic understanding of students’ personal, spiritual and social needs.

As a faith Academy, students of all faith backgrounds and none are valued. The Academy endeavours to reflect the rich and diverse heritage of Wolverhampton. For more information on our Christian Ethos  click here (Page6 or to Christian Ethos page)

KS3 Curriculum (years 7, 8 & 9)

Every effort is made to enable the preferred choice as requested by students, but where an option is not viable in terms of numbers and/or staffing, Governors reserve the right to withdraw the subject option offer. Subjects running are also lead by student choice
