The Curriculum at George Abbot School is designed to enable our students to experience a broad, balanced and enriching curriculum that offers continuity and coherence whilst achieving high standards.
Students have access to a comprehensive and varied range of subjects including many exciting opportunities within the specialisms of visual arts and modern foreign languages.
The curriculum is organised through a faculty and departmental structure alongside a pastoral system based around year groups Year 7-Year 13. The Faculty and Departmental framework is as follows:
English Language & English Literature
Humanities & Social Science
Government & Politics
NB. Humanities & Social Science incorporates: Critical Thinking & EPQ (please see PDF below)
Business Studies & Economics
Computer Science & ICT
Maths / Further Maths (Information to follow)
Science & Technology
Design & Technology
Food Technology & Child Development
Visual Arts & Performing Arts
Drama & Dance
In addition to the five faculty areas above, the following are offered as part of the curriculum:
Vocational and other flexible external courses
All students follow a similar pattern in Years 7, 8 and 9 with opportunities for early experience of GCSE courses and transition support for a small group in Year 7.
During Year 9, staff, parents and students are engaged in agreeing the best course of study to be followed in Years 10 and 11. A booklet containing full information about the courses available in Year 10 and Year 11 is provided as a part of the 'Choices' programme.
Careers education operates throughout a student's secondary school life but advice from the careers staff is particularly important at this time.
