Curriculum Model

At The Gainsborough Academy, we aim to send all young people into an ever-changing world able and qualified to play their full part in it. We are committed to ensuring that all students have the best educational experience possible.

At The Gainsborough Academy students follow a curriculum outlined by the government but adapted to ensure they reach their full potential. We know that not every student is the same. To achieve the best from our students we identify their needs and endeavour to fulfil them.

All students follow a timetable of 20 lessons per week across a 5-year pathway that builds on knowledge and skill whilst ensuring all can access a broad and balanced offer.

During KS4, students will study their core subjects alongside the subjects they have chosen as their options. A list of the full subjects available to take as an option can be found on this website along with details regarding the options process. The full breakdown of the Curriculum model and Curriculum intent can be accessed using the links on this page.

If you have any queries or questions relating to the Curriculum, please contact Mrs A Leng, Principal, via the details on the Contact page.
