Curriculum

The curriculum at Hayfield is both challenging and wide ranging. It is delivered through a variety of teaching processes and provides variety and interest to all students. We operate a three year Key Stage 3 and two year Key Stage 4. This enables students to follow a broad and balanced curriculum whilst maximising their achievement.

At Key Stage 3 (Years 7 & 8) students study the following NC subjects:

English, Mathematics, Science, ICT, French, German, History, Geography, Technology, Art, Music, Drama, Physical Education, Religious Education, Personal Development At the end of Year 8 students make informed choices as to the courses they study in Key Stage 4.

Options are tailored to meet the needs of the individual student. All students follow a common core of English, Mathematics, Science, ICT, Modern Foreign Language and non-examinable courses in PE, RE and PD. Students then opt for further studies in Business, Creative, Humanities, ICT, Languages, Sport or Technology.

We offer an A level Sixth Form where students follow 3 or 4 AS courses in Year 12 and if successful follow these through to A2 in Year 13. All areas of the curriculum offer A level courses and, in addition, courses in Critical Thinking and General Studies are offered to students. Information Evenings are held to inform parents of choices or raise awareness on issues.

Every Year Group has a Parents Evening where students and their parents can talk to staff about their progress. The curriculum remains under regular review to ensure we respond to the changing needs of students and the external influences from the work place and society.
