Learning at Iveshead is divided into three distinct phases, with a strong focus on meeting the needs and challenges of students at each stage of their educational development.
‘Introduction Phase’ (Years 7-8)
We ensure a smooth transition from primary school for our Year 7 students who, along with year 8 students are accommodated in a modern, purpose-designed building.
All students follow a curriculum of core subjects over two years, which lays the foundations of their continued learning and progress. Year 8 students make their option choices which allows for an earlier start to GCSE courses.
‘Immersion Phase’ (Year 9-11)
Students in years 9, 10 and 11 follow the GCSE curriculum which offers a broad and balanced range of core subjects and options to ensure that every students can identify and choose subjects to suit their abilities, interests and future career or study paths. The curriculum allows all students to access the English Baccalaureate.
‘Independent Phase’ (Years 12-13 Post 16)
We have a thriving and successful Post 16, with an excellent record of results. We offer a wide range of courses, with our students also taking on a range of enrichment activities including charity work, volunteering and work experience.
