Curriculum Overview

The curriculum at Biddick Academy is based on a culture of high expectations and achievement. We support the development of well-rounded children who go on to be responsible citizens through a broad, balanced and knowledge rich curriculum. Students develop the knowledge, skills and cultural capital to make a positive contribution to society and succeed in life.

We want all of our students to be challenged academically and supported so that they develop a love for learning. In addition, our extensive careers education programme helps to motivate and inspire our students helping them to develop their own personal goals and aspirations for the future.

Students follow a fortnightly timetable, subjects are taught in mixed ability groups and groups set by academic ability. Throughout Years 7 to 9, students follow a three year Key Stage 3 curriculum, choosing their Key Stage 4 options ready for the end of Year 9.

In Key Stage 4, students study English, Mathematics, Science (either combined or separate sciences). They select a core option of either Geography or History and select three other choices.  More information can be found on the Options page.
