The philosophy of Tudor Grange Academy Solihull is that each student is entitled to a curriculum that prepares him or her for life’s opportunities, responsibilities and experiences. Statutory requirements of the national curriculum are supplemented by the Academy’s broader curricular provision.
At key stage three, students follow a common curriculum. In years 9, 10 and 11 students are offered greater choice, enabling a more personalised curriculum that meets the needs of each individual learner.
Key Stage Three
All students in their first two years at the Academy study a curriculum which includes English, mathematics, science, history, geography, religious studies, physical education, art, music, design and technology, modern foreign languages, computing and drama. Students also participate in a healthy living course (which includes food) and an enrichment course (with a focus on team work, leadership and resilience).
During year 8, full consultation takes place between staff, students and parents to support curriculum choices at key stage four.
Key Stage Four
The key stage four curriculum is designed to give students every opportunity to achieve their full potential and to maximise the choices available at post-16. All students in years 9, 10 and 11 study English language, English literature, mathematics, science, religious studies, physical education and PSHE. There is a considerable amount of curriculum choice available. students can choose to study from a range of GCSE and vocational qualifications.
Key Stage Five
The curriculum at Post 16 is designed to prepare students for both university and the world of work. Each post-16 student has their own specific goal and ambition and we ensure that each student has a personalised curriculum that meets their individual requirements. Students choose from a diverse range of qualifications so that they are able to participate in challenging and enjoyable courses.
