Year 7 Curriculum
The year 7 curriculum has been designed to aid transition into secondary school, to excite students about the opportunities for learning at SHSG and to lay down the foundations for a successful academic career within the school.
Students study English, Mathematics, Science, two languages (French and either German or Spanish) RS, Geography and History and a range creative subjects including Art, Music, Food Tech, Textiles and Resistant Materials. Every fortnight Year 7 students have an opportunity to take a break from the standard curriculum and take part in a ‘Flexible Friday’. This is an opportunity for students to explore a subject in much more depth than would normally be possible for a year 7 student to do and /or a subject that they may not encounter until later in their educational career. These Fridays are a critical part of helping year 7 students to mix with the entire year group, to work with a wide range of staff / outside visitors and to start to develop the all-important ‘soft skills’ that are so critical to developing into resilient and robust learners. They are also just a huge amount of fun and there is nothing more important for a year 7 student to learn than if they want to sustain a life of high achievement then learning to laugh along the way is vital.
