Curriculum

Higham Lane North Academy Free School will offer students the entitlement to an enriching curriculum which will enable students to study a wide range of subjects in depth. Our rich, broad and balanced curriculum will be based on the National Curriculum. The curriculum will offer the flexibility for personalisation with students able to take GCSEs early, study separate Sciences but also reduce the number of subjects studied in order to receive extra curriculum support or be entered for alternative qualifications where this is appropriate.

In Key Stage 4, students will have a wide range of option subjects to choose from which will be supported by a strong core of English, Maths and Science.

We strongly value art, design & technology, music, drama and sport in providing an enriching time for our students.

A wide range of extra-curricular activities will be offered to students to support their academic and personal development, to help to build our young people’s confidence and resilience through participation in the many opportunities offered. These will include after-school activities offering opportunities in sport, music (vocal and instrumental), drama, subject-related clubs and debating as well as a wide range of educational visits, including the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award. The school will actively take part in competitive sport locally, regionally and nationally.
