The Curriculum

Key Stage 3

Pupils in Years 7, 8 & 9 receive two 60 minute lessons a week with homework set each week, as is the policy at Hollingworth. Pupils are taught in mixed ability groups in Year 7 and in sets in Year 8 and Year 9. Progress is tracked and monitored in accordance with agreed procedures. Pupils complete a baseline assessment the first half term in Year 7 and receive three assessments a year. Pupils have the opportunity to study a second language, Italian as part of our Year 9 Preference Curriculum.

GCSE (Key Stage 4)

Pupils in GCSE classes receive three 60 minute lessons a week with homework one to three times a week. The two year GCSE course is awarded with the Edexcel examination board (40% examinations and 60% controlled assessment). Progress is tracked and monitored in accordance with agreed procedure. Pupils complete a range of both formal and informal assessments in the form of extended writing and speaking activities in class, as well as mock and real examinations.
