Year 10 curriculum overview

The Bourne End Academy curriculum 2021-22 

We believe in a knowledge-centered curriculum which focuses on students acquiring ‘powerful knowledge’ (Young and Muller, 2013, p. 245) across a range of academic disciplines to ensure students have access to a broad and balanced education. Within a knowledge centered curriculum, subjects are taught at gradually increasing levels of complexity leading to deeper knowledge and understanding. We are ambitious for all our students. We have selected the most relevant and important knowledge to be taught across Year 7-9 in order to prepare our students to become successful leaders of the future global economy. It will also support students to make informed choices about their GCSE study.
