The curriculum overview shows the subjects students have access to during the academic year 2016 – 2017.

At Greenfield Community College we believe that education is far more than teaching students how to pass exams. Whilst these are very important, we also believe that our students need to develop a wider set of skills, equipping them to face adult life and its many challenges in an ever changing world.

Greenfield Community College will provide a curriculum which inspires, challenges and safeguards all our students, and enables them to become:

  • Successful learners who enjoy learning, make progress and achieve
  • Confident individuals who are able to live safe, healthy and fulfilling lives
  • Responsible citizens who make a socially and economically positive contribution to society

Years 7, 8 and 9

In years 7,8 and 9 students have access to a broad range of subjects such as English, Maths, Science, Geography, History, Computing, Religious Education, Physical Education, Art, Technology, Food, Performing Arts and a Modern Foreign Language, in line with the National Curriculum. In year 8 some students are also offered the opportunity to study German. 

Students are set in one of three bands based on their English skills and separately, on their Mathematical skills and Science Skills.

Personal, Social, Health and Economic education is delivered both across the curriculum, through our RRS days and our Ofsted acclaimed Time 4 Success vertical tutoring system.

 Years 10 and 11

During Years 10 and 11 students will follow one of our Learning Pathways studying a selection of courses designed to ensure that every student can achieve success. Students are allocated to a pathway following discussions between a Senior Teacher, the individual student and their parents.

Students on all of the Pathways will study a common core of subjects. These are English Language, English Literature, Mathematics, Science, Creative iMedia, Physical Education and Religious Education.

A large proportion of Greenfield Students will access the English Baccalaureate (Ebacc). The Ebacc is used as a key measure of a student’s ability and is considered the gold standard of academic achievement. To achieve the Ebacc students must pass Maths, English, Science, History or Geography and a Modern Foreign Language at a grade 5 or better.   

Students make their option choices in Year 9.
