Curriculum

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

At Skegness Grammar School (SGS), all Key Stage 3 (KS3) students follow a broad curriculum, which enables them to make an informed choice for the beginning of their Key Stage 4 (KS4) studies. Find out more about the KS3 curriculum by downloading the ‘Year 7 & 8 Curriculum Overview’ documents.

 

The 2-3 year KS4 provides students with a full range of subjects, designed to give learners the knowledge and skills to thrive in life. All students will commence courses leading to 10 full GCSEs. Find out more about the KS4 Curriculum by downloading the ‘Key Stage 4 Prospectus’ document.

 

At Key Stage 5 (KS5) 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 accredited enrichment course including the Extended Project Qualification (EPQ). This has grown in popularity in recent years with many students opting to complete the 5000 word dissertation. Find out more about the KS5 Curriculum by downloading the ‘Sixth Form Course Guide Jan’ document.

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. To find out more about British Values at our academy, please download the following documents: ‘British Values’ and ‘British Values within the curriculum’.
