Curriculum at The Peele Community College

At The Peele Community College all learners have the opportunity to experience a broad and balanced curriculum.

Within Key Stages 3 and 4 all learners engage in high quality learning across all five core subjects, English, Mathematics, Science, Humanities and Modern Foreign Languages allowing them to achieve the English Baccalaureate.

The college day is broken down into five one hour lessons of high quality learning.

In Years 7 and 8 students engage in the following lessons: 

Subjects English Maths Science Hums MFL PE DT Perf.  Arts
Lessons per week 5 5 4 6 3 2 3 2

In Years 9 students engage in the following lessons: 

Subjects English Maths Science Hums MFL PE DT Perf. Arts ICT
Lessons per week 5 5 5 4 3 2 3 2 1

The inclusion of a Vocational programme for some students in Year 9 runs for 3 lessons, acts as a foundation year and supports students’ option choices for Key Stage 4. At this point ICT is also introduced into the curriculum to support students’ progression towards their ICT qualification at the end of Key Stage 4.

Key Stage 4:

At Key Stage 4 the curriculum is broken down into levels of learning and is constantly being reviewed and developed in light of the changes that are being introduced by the government.

At Key Stage 4 we have the following:

Grammar and Pathway1 learner: You must circle 1 subject from each option block, A, B, C and D that you would like to take as your option choices. These students are encouraged to study mainly subjects from row 1 and 2.

BTEC / Vocational Learners: You must circle 1 subject from each option block, A, B, C and D that you would like to take as your option choices. These students are encouraged to study mainly subjects from row 2 and 3.

Pathway 2 Learning / Foundation Learning: You must circle 1 subject from A/B, C and D that you would like to take as your option choices. These students are encouraged to study mainly subjects from row 3, 4 or 5.

Key Stage 4 Options Available: Students choose one option from each of the four options blocks. Each option subject is allocated three fifty minute lessons.
