Curriculum

At Dixons Kings Academy, we pride ourselves on ensuring that all students are successful in their learning. We focus on supporting students to make exceptional progress in every subject 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 (KS3) 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 (KS4) choices, some of which will be made in Year 8. Our curriculum is designed to support students to 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, focusing 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 permeate 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.
