|Misc - Setting|
|Written by Mr Brown|
On admission to our school pupils are set on their Key Stage 2 performance. These groups are carefully monitored and pupils may be moved if it is felt to be in their best interests. At the end of Year 7 the school again tests the ability of all pupils and assigns them to ability groups for Year 8. A similar process is carried out at the end of that year.
During Key Stage 3 all pupils will study Religious Studies, English, Mathematics, Information Technology, French, Science, History, Geography, Technology, Art, Music and Physical Education.
In addition there is a Personal and Social Education and citizenship programme delivered to each year group through the house based tutor system.
In years 10 and 11, pupils have the opportunity to select subjects which, from an extensive programme (including vocational alternatives), allied to a core curriculum of Religious Education, Mathematics, English, Science, ICT, Careers Education, Work Related Learning and Games, give the necessary breadth of study for further educational advancement or employment.
The post 16 curriculum is designed to offer pupils an opportunity to continue their education. We offer pupils a wide range of AS and `A' level courses, including vocational alternatives, supplemented by the opportunity to retake GCSE English and Mathematics. Over recent years the breadth of subjects available for pupils aged 14 - 19 has developed significantly through our work with other Wyre Forest Schools in the ContinU Partnership.
Hagley sets high standards for everyone who works here and we are always striving to do better. We are proud of our record but not complacent. We will continue to strive for excellence and expect those joining us for the first time to do the same.
