Curriculum

Curriculum Intent

At Barlby High School we believe that our curriculum comprises of everything a child experiences during their time with us.  We can say that our curriculum is built around two main threads.  The first being the experiences we deliver both inside and outside of lessons to build a student’s character and the second being strong academic progress for all.  We strive to ensure that the design of the curriculum at Barlby focuses on maximising the outcomes for all students, this means that we need to develop high aspirations for our students by providing them with a breadth of opportunity, development of skills and a rich knowledge base enabling them to succeed and progress.

Curriculum Organisation

Key Stage 3

Students are taught mainly in mixed ability groups with some banding in Maths but this is dependent on cohort need.

Key Stage 4

Students are divided into sets for Mathematics and Science based on tier of entry.  English whilst timetabled as a block is taught as mixed ability groups but allows movement between groups.

For Option subjects, they are taught in groups according to their choice of subject and the examination level to which the subject is taught. Options are blocked according to students’ preference and not in pre-defined blocks.

Curriculum Planning

Click here to see Barlby High Schools Curriculum model and therefore approach to Curriculum time for all subjects across both KS3 and KS4.

The curriculum at Barlby High School is split into two key stages. Key Stage 3 currently runs for Years 7 and 8, and Key Stage 4 runs from Year 9 to Year 11. Students study a wide range of subjects through Key Stage 3 and we try to encourage a good breadth of subjects as options for Key Stage 4 as well. The government actively encourages schools to ensure EBacc subjects are available to all pupils. The EBacc comprises English, mathematics, science, history or geography and a foreign language. Performance within these subjects make up 70% of key government measures, with the remaining 30% for all other subjects.

Key Stage 3: Years 7-8

Students follow the programme of study of the National Curriculum and take the full range of subjects

  • English
  • Mathematics
  • Science
  • Religious and World views (including personal, social and health education)
  • Art
  • Design Technology
  • Food Technology
  • Computing
  • Modern Languages (French)
  • Geography
  • History
  • Drama
  • Music
  • Physical Education

Key Stage 4: Years 9-11

All students study English (Language and Literature), Mathematics, Science, Religious Studies (including personal, social and health education and citizenship).

In addition, students have access to study further optional courses. Courses are available in the following areas:

  • GCSE English Language and Literature

All students also follow a core programme of Physical Education and Religious and World views (including personal, social and health education) in line with National statutory requirements.

There is also a comprehensive Foundation Learning strand of courses, which are offered to students with specific requirements. These include Entry Level Maths and elements of the AQA unit award scheme.  Please note that the curriculum offer changes on annual basis. 

In the spring term of Year 8, parents and students are informed about the choices available and the work to be covered in each course.  Students are offered advice before any decisions are made.  Students receive advice from subject teachers and an independent Careers Adviser.

Cross-curricular skills are developed throughout Key Stage 4, in ICT, economic and industrial understanding, enterprise education, environmental education and citizenship.

If you have any queries relating to curriculum, please contact Karly Wallace, Deputy Principal: Curriculum and Achievement T: 01757 706161.
