Curriculum

At Sunbury Manor we are committed to providing a broad and balanced curriculum; one that enables all students to develop essential skills and knowledge before branching out into their chosen fields of study at Key Stage 4. All students in year 7 study English, Maths, History, Geography, R.E, Computing, P.E. and Spanish. In addition, one of the things we pride ourselves on is the fact that Music, Art, Drama, Food and Nutrition, Design Technology, Biology, Chemistry and Physics are all taught as discrete subjects, timetabled on a weekly basis. We believe that this allows all individuals to develop their strengths and talents.

To ensure individuals are allowed to grow and develop, we deliver discrete lessons in Life Skills and Citizenship. These subjects not only equip students with the necessary skills to discuss moral and social issues and question the world around them, they also provide them with study skills and the tools needed to become independent learners.  Whilst we acknowledge that circumstances will change by the time your child enters Key Stage 4, our current KS4 curriculum is centred on GCSEs with very few alternative qualifications. After carrying out research, we are aware that a number of the colleges to which our students move onto do not accept many of the alternative qualifications.
