Our high expectations and aspirations for pupils drives the relentless commitment to continually raise the quality of teaching to support the delivery of an outstanding curriculum.

 

At Knights pupils study a range of qualifications and can take a combination of vocational and academic subjects. We also offer GCSE English and Maths for those pupils who did not reach a grade 4. Pupils complete work experience: two weeks for those on vocational pathway, and one week for academic. This takes place towards the end of year 12.

 

It is an on-going priority of the Academy to ensure that the curriculum throughout the all-through school is accessible to all pupils in terms of breadth, challenge, engagement and motivation.

 

The curriculum is responsive to the needs of all pupils, with accelerated routes and targeted support and interventions, depending on pupil’s attainment and achievement.

 

Pupil’s progress is tracked and monitored every six weeks to ensure that they are on the correct trajectory to achieve or exceed their target grades.
