Curriculum Overview

Academies have curriculum flexibility in order to better match the curriculum to the needs of their students.

Given the high ability of our students, this means that our curriculum structure is predicated around the importance
of challenge and high achievement. In line with this philosophy, Colyton Grammar School delivers its lower years programme across two years (Years 7 and 8) thereby facilitating opportunities for greater breadth and depth in the exam years. Our GCSE courses are taught over three years (Years 9, 10 and 11) thereby allowing Year 12 and 13
students to follow a focused two year Sixth Form programme.

The central principles underpinning our approach to the curriculum at Colyton are:

  • Academic coherence
  • Knowledge rich
  • Stretch and challenge for all
  • Partnership centred
  • Empowering for an unpredictable future

Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural (SMSC)

Across all years and subjects spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural aspects are studied.
