Curriculum Information

At High Storrs we have a strong and varied curriculum offer that reflects our Creative and Performing Arts specialism as well as including Classical and other subjects, some of which are rarely seen in other schools. We value diversity and our curriculum reflects that. Our curriculum is a careful balance of knowledge and skills that leads students to successful examination outcomes as well as developing them as life-long learners and well-rounded individuals who are able to make valuable contributions to their communities.

We run a weekly timetable with five 1 hour periods each day. Teaching is excellent across the board and Core subjects are particularly outstanding.

We have a two year Key Stage 3 and a three year Key Stage 4. New GCSEs are being introduced as they come on line nationally and in the Sixth Form, courses are gradually moving across to a fully linear offer with new A Levels taken at the end of Year 13. There is presently a mixture of these and old AS/A2 courses. Each subject is studied for 5 hours a week in the Sixth Form.

You can see exactly what subjects are available in each Key Stage and how they are arranged and what they include in the accompanying documents:
