Curriculum

At Skegness Grammar School we offer a wide and challenging curriculum in an academic environment from Year 7 to 13.

At Key Stage 3 all students follow a broad curriculum which enables them to make an informed choice at the beginning of Key Stage 4.  At SGS we have a 3 year KS4 which starts at the beginning of Year 9. However in some subjects this is accelerated lower down into Year 7 & 8 depending on the ability profile of students. A KS3 teaching classes are organised according to Mathematics attaninment. To reflect the nature of our students we will be aking year 8 and 9 to make option choices in readiness for GCSE teaching. Here they will  concentrate on their choice of subjects within the prescribed guidelines of the National Curriculum. All students will commence courses leading to 9 full GCSEs.

At Key Stage 5 we offer a wide range of A level courses. At present all students in Year 12 study three subjects at GCE level.  Some students, upon receipt of their GCSE grades, may decide to study four subjects. Students in Year 12 have the option of following an accreditied enrichment course including the Extended Project Qualification. This has grown in popularity in recent years with many students opting to complete a 5000 word dissertation.

In addition there is a very rich programme of sporting and extra-curricular activities. Students also study Citizenship, PSHE and Careers Education.

David Ross Education Trust and British Values

The Trust is very supportive of the ethos of promoting British Values, and preparing our pupils for success in a modern Britain. A heavy reliance is placed upon broadening horizons for each and every child and this includes developing the core skills of tolerance, respect, teamwork, resilience and building self esteem. These are all values and qualities that we feel are relevant in order to play a full and meaningful role in society, and are promoted via our extensive house system that lends itself to cultural and sporting competition, democratic principles, social mixing, the development of greater pastoral care and enhanced PSHE.
