Bredon Hill Academy Curriculum

 

Students at Bredon Hill Academy follow a broad, balanced and relevant curriculum throughout years 6 to 8. This curriculum enhances students’ learning, attainment and achievement, challenging them to develop insight and independence of thought. At the end of year 8 our curriculum helps students to become:

 

  • Successful learners who enjoy learning, make progress and achieve
  • Confident individuals who are able to live safe and healthy lives
  • Responsible citizens who make a positive contribution to the society

 

We follow a fortnightly timetable, with 5 lessons per day. The three morning lessons are 60 minutes long, and the two afternoon lessons are 55 minutes long. The table below details how many lessons students will receive every fortnight, you can also download a more detailed curriculum document for each year group using the links below.
