St Edward’s provides subject-based teaching at both Key Stage 2 (Years 5 and 6) and Key Stage 3 (Years 7 and 8). Our intent is to provide subject specialists who are well qualified and up-to-date with all aspects of their subject teaching. Who teach their chosen disciplines in rooms and with resources to support this endeavour.
Pupils study the National Curriculum, in Years 5 – 8. In all years’ pupils study English; Maths; Religious Education; Science; Computing; Geography; History; French; Physical Education; Music; Art and Design; Design and Technology; PSHE. In some subjects, pupils are taught in mixed ability classes, and in others, such as English and Maths they are taught in ability groups.
In Year 8, pupils undertake the Arch Bishop of York Young Leaders Scheme.
ICT and Technology is used extensively to enhance learning across the Academy.
