Curriculum

Our mission is to ensure that all Priory Ruskin Academy students  will develop the skills to become successful learners, confident individuals and responsible, well cultured citizens who are fully prepared for modern life.

At Key Stage 3, our students develop an inquisitiveness for learning through an engaging, challenging and vibrant curriculum. Years 7 and 8 lay the foundations for life long learning through a focus on the development of key skills and concepts in all subject areas. This is supported by an excellent pastoral  system which encourages a holistic approach to student learning, including personal, cultural and spiritual awareness. All students have access to a rich extra curricular programme which aims to foster individual talents and interests.

Our three year Key Stage 4 is designed to ensure that all learners have a right to follow a pathway which supports their talents and interests. From the foundations laid in KS3, students will develop a deep learning of subjects which supports their future ambitions. Our options range from purely academic subjects to quality vocational provision, affording students the opportunity to opt into either, or a combination of these pathways.

KS5 builds on the success of KS4 provision which provides academic , vocational or mixed pathways for future success in higher education, including Russell Group Universities, or advanced apprenticeships.
