Year 7 curriculum
We want the educational experience of all our pupils to be one that raises aspirations and self-belief and enthuses children to become life-long learners.
At Heron Hall Academy, we recognise that students need to study a broad range of subjects to develop into well-informed young people, before they choose their specialisms at GCSE in preparation for their adult lives.
During Key Stage 3, we follow the National Curriculum and students study the following subjects:
- Design and Food Technology
- Computer Science
- French or Spanish
- Humanities (Geography, History)
- Physical Education
- Personal, Social, Health and Economic Education
- Religious Education
Details about these different subjects can be found here.
To supplement our curriculum offer, our school prides itself on our extra-curricular provision.
Being able to offer students a wide range of extra-curricular activities is especially important as it encourages our students to become independent, confident, and well-rounded individuals. Students can participate in creative activities as well as sport, dance, computing, languages, and drama. The school provides opportunities for students to learn outside of the classroom and runs several educational visits throughout the year. Trips to date include visits to top Universities, The Globe Theatre, a variety of West End Shows, Geneva, Disneyland Paris and many more.
Furthermore, we have outstanding sporting activities at Heron Hall, which also run as clubs at the end of the school day, encouraging physical activity, having fun and competition.
We recently invested £500,000 in a 4G Astroturf and pupils thoroughly enjoy our outside space and the first-class sporting facilities we offer.
