The Piggott School

A Church of England Academy


The Secondary Curriculum

We offer a broad, balanced curriculum throughout Key Stages 3 & 4, and provide as great a degree of choice as possible . Our intention is to fulfil all the requirements of the National Curriculum and beyond, and to cater for the needs of students of all abilities.

In Years 7 and 8, students follow a broad, common curriculum. In Years 9, 10 and 11 students follow the core curriculum and then choose additional subjects retaining a broad balance in their curriculum, whilst allowing specialisation to occur when appropriate. The vast majority of students are entered for ten GCSE examinations including Religious Studies.

In Years 12 and 13 we offer both vocational and A-Level courses. A curriculum enrichment programme, including P.E., is followed, standards are high and students are expected to be committed to their studies. Visit our Sixth Form pages for course details.

Full details of the courses offered by the various departments are available using the right hand menu and by  contacting the appropriate Head of Department.  

Please visit this page in the coming weeks for more information about our Curriculum Vision, Aims and Intent for each subject.
