Curriculum

At Dixons Kings Academy we pride ourselves on ensuring that all students are successful in their learning. We focus on supporting all students to make exceptional progress in all subjects that they are studying. Our curriculum focuses on high expectations of achievement for all, this is supported through the highly personalised teaching in the classroom.

The start of key stage 3 marks an exciting phase in the lives of our students. It is the period when they build on their primary education and prepare for their key stage 4 choices, some of which will be made in Year 8. Our curriculum is designed so that students can master the basics as well as offer more flexibility so that teachers can tailor their teaching to students' needs and aspirations.

We offer a broad and balanced curriculum, focussing on the key skills required to access KS4 & further study successfully and beyond into the world of work.  Subjects studied are English, Maths, Science, Computing, History, Geography, PE, Music, Drama, Art, Languages, Technology and RE.  Citizenship, Enterprise, Careers and PHSEE are taught throughout the curriculum and permeates everything we do within school. 

KS4 is the period when students build on their earlier learning and prepare for adult life, higher education and employment.

English, Maths, Science and RE remain compulsory and all pupils will continue to be taught Physical Education.

We will focus on an Ebacc Curriculum where students study English, Maths and Science alongside a Humanity (History or Geography) and a Language.
