Our Curriculum

We have an uncompromising commitment to ensure that every child achieves their academic potential at Sawtry Village Academy. Our curriculum has been carefully designed to secure the best possible outcomes for our students and to create well-rounded and cultured individuals.

Year 7 curriculum

Year 7 students at Sawtry Village Academy will follow a new and exciting curriculum designed to help settle students into secondary education. This means that they will study English, History, Geography, Religious Studies, PE, Music, Languages, Technology, ICT/Computing, Core studies, Science and Mathematics as their main focus for Year 7 and our setting structure for classes ensures that students are able to enjoy their maths while being challenged to progress rapidly.

Year 8 and 9 curriculum

By Year 8 the transition has been completed and the student immerses themselves in an exciting curriculum where English, Maths and Science are the core focus. At Sawtry Village Academy students follow the KS3 curriculum for three years. This means that during Year 9, students choose, with the guidance of their form tutors and parents, their GCSE option choices.

Year 10 and 11 curriculum – GCSE

Students begin their GCSE studies in Year 10, which provides time to develop breadth and depth before taking examinations in Year 11.

Our guided choices programme allows students to access the creative and technical subjects, such as Art, Music, Dance, Construction, Sport, Drama, Product Design, Textiles, Psychology, Sociology, Business studies, Computing and Food Technology, alongside a curriculum that focuses on developing students’ achievements in the core subjects: English, Maths, Science, History, Geography, Modern Foreign Languages, Ethics and practical PE.
