We teach the National Curriculum for England. The programme for each subject is both engaging and promotes independent learning and further enquiry. We offer a broad core of 8 subjects online in the following subjects:
Pupils studying in our online secondary school at KS3 and KS4 level can enrol onto as many or as few of the subjects from the core list. The fee remains the same.
In addition, pupils can choose additional subjects from the list below for an extra £200 per subject per year. Fees for additional subjects have to be paid in full prior to the start of the course.
Film Studies (Years 8 and 9 only)
*The fee for an Additional subject(s) is not eligible for a discount or refund if the student discontinues the additional tuition.
In addition, pupils can choose from a wide a range of short courses together with a variety of teacher-led clubs (Please Note, short courses require an additional payment of £50. Courses run on a termly basis, excluding Babysitting which lasts two terms).
Advanced Creative Writing
Introduction to Childcare
All clubs and short courses run for one term, apart from Babysitting, that lasts for two terms. There is a £50 charge for doing a short course.
Pupils follow units of work on a theme, which will develop all of their English skills. These are then assessed in terms of the areas mentioned above. Literature will be studied alongside and, where appropriate, as part of each unit of work. Whenever possible the pupils’ work will be designed for a wider audience than simply the teacher; publication and display are seen as being crucial to developing good writers.
As the course develops, pupils will be encouraged to view themselves as consumers of the moving image with their responses shaped by narrative and genre (style of film) expectations. They will learn about the origins and development of film – primarily in Hollywood but also they will look at case studies of world cinema such as Iranian, Russian, Australian cinema and their characteristics.
The course is highly interactive and practical enabling pupils to carry out a variety of independent work connected to film production such as posters, scripts, story boards and short film production.
Ultimately the aim is for pupils to be able to express a point of view on film, supported by coherent evidence gathered from their studies.
Pupils will extend their knowledge and deepen their awareness of the world’s countries using maps of the world focusing on environmental regions, including polar and hot deserts, key physical and human characteristics, countries and major cities. Pupils will understand the key processes in physical geography relating to timescale and plate tectonics, rocks and soils, weathering and the weather and climate, hydrology and coasts. Pupils will understand how human and physical processes interact to influence and change environments and climate and how human activity relies on the effective functioning of natural systems.
Starting in Year 7, pupils are given some detail of all human body systems, chemical processes, techniques, movement, forces and heating. By the end of Year 9, pupils will have gained a good appreciation of the fundamental concepts behind cell biochemistry, the environment, chemical reactions, atomic structure, electricity, electronics, energy, materials, light and sound. The course has been organised in a highly sequential form with one lesson leading from the other and topics revisited in later years to a greater depth.
The course provides:
• Practical skills in the target language
• A stimulating and enjoyable language experience
• Attainable targets for pupils of all levels of ability
• A range of learning styles for collaborative group work and individual work
• An understanding and appreciation of foreign cultures
• Skills and positive attitudes towards the further study of languages
