At Hornsea we believe in putting the student first in every decision that we make. We believe that a broad and balanced education provides a critical foundation upon which our students can build in order to secure a brighter future.
Our aim is to nurture responsible, useful and kind members of the community who will go on to be tomorrow’s leaders, writers, innovators, engineers, teachers, and citizens – as such, our curriculum is structured to try and create the conditions in which our students can excel and develop their resilience and originality.
Contained within the document linked below you will find details on the content of our school curriculum in each key stage, for every subject. For each department there is also a list of the courses which are available at key stage 4 and key stage 5.
*New for 2019/20 onwards:* In previous years, the process of selecting options for GCSE study has started in Year 8.
After researching alternative models and undertaking a consultation with the staff, we have made the decision to move back to a model whereby options are selected in Year 9 (with the teaching of these starting in Year 10).
If you have a child currently in Year 8, further information regarding the options process will be sent to you next year (when your son / daughter will be in Year 9).
Resources from the most recent options process are available from the menu on the right for your information.
I hope that the information contained within the document gives you a feel of what is on offer, however if you have any questions or queries you can always ask to speak to someone from the curriculum team using the following
