Curriculum

At Dixons Allerton Academy, we pride ourselves on ensuring that all scholars are successful in their learning. We focus on supporting scholars to make exceptional progress in every subject that they are studying. Our curriculum focuses on high expectations of achievement for all; this is supported through the highly personalised teaching in the classroom.

The start of Key Stage 3 (KS3) marks an exciting phase in the lives of our scholars. It is the period when they build on their primary education and prepare for their Key Stage 4 (KS4) choices, some of which will be made in Year 8. Our curriculum is designed to support scholars to master the basics as well as offer more flexibility, so that teachers can tailor their teaching to scholars' needs and aspirations.

We offer a broad and balanced curriculum, focusing on the key skills required to access KS4 & further study successfully and beyond into the world of work. Subjects studied are English, maths, science, computing, history, geography, PE, music, drama, art, languages, technology and RE. Citizenship, enterprise, careers and PHSEE are taught throughout the curriculum and permeate everything we do within school. 

KS4 is the period when scholars build on their earlier learning and prepare for adult life, higher education and employment.

We will focus on an Ebacc curriculum where scholars study English, maths and science alongside a humanity (history or geography) and a language. 

Key Stage 3 Assessment Framework

Key Stage 3 National Curriculum Levels were abolished by the Department for Education from September 2014. All schools in England are now expected to develop their own model of assessment and publish it for parents. Below you can find a link to view the Key Stage 3 assessment framework
