Curriculum

Students at Boston Spa Academy follow a broad and balanced curriculum. Our curriculum has been designed to ensure that all students develop the knowledge and skills they need for further study and employment, and to foster a curiosity and love of learning that will stay with them for life. The curriculum in every subject is mapped and carefully sequenced across 5 years, ensuring that new knowledge and skills build on what has been taught before.

Key Stage 3

The Key Stage Three curriculum ensures all pupils have a strong foundation on which to build their studies at GCSE and Post 16. Students study the full range of subjects. The curriculum comprises: English, mathematics, science, history, geography, religious studies, French, PE, music, drama, design technology (including food and textiles), art and computing.

Key Stage 4

Students make their GCSE option choices in Year 8. They all study English Language, English Literature, science, mathematics and core PE. In addition they choose four options from a range of subjects comprising GCSEs and vocational qualifications. All students must study either history or geography at GCSE and they are very much encouraged to pursue the study of French or Spanish (or both) at GCSE.
