Senior School Curriculum

An Inspiring Curriculum for GCSEs.

Continuing the holistic approach to whole-child education which we take right through Nursery and Junior School, the rich and varied curriculum at Akeley Wood Senior School is designed to get the very best out of every student, allowing them the space and support in which to discover and nurture their individual strengths and passions.

We celebrate the diversity and widespread talents of our students and recognise that they will go on to follow vastly different careers, from city highflyers to sculptors, architects and authors.



By teaching an inspiring array of subjects across the curriculum, we give students in Years 7, 8 and 9 the opportunity to build a solid educational foundation, allowing them to make informed choices when they select their GCSE subjects at Key Stage 4.

Students are introduced to our Careers and Futures lead, based at the Sixth Form Campus, at this stage. We offer the traditional subjects alongside courses such as Film Studies, Food and Nutrition and Music Technology. Our aim is to be able to inspire all our students.

Alongside their academic studies, we encourage students to try something new as part of our Enrichment Curriculum Programme to broaden their horizons.

GCSE students can choose from the following subjects:
