Students at Copley Academy study a diverse and knowledge-rich curriculum, which is broad and balanced. Curriculum planning is designed to provide opportunities to students in each year group to master knowledge and skills, whilst helping them to prepare for life beyond the Academy, as responsible and aspirational citizens.
Lessons at Copley Academy are 60 minutes in length and we currently have a two-week timetable; Week A and Week B.
The number of lessons assigned to each subject provides not only breadth in the different curriculum areas, but the opportunity to develop depth of knowledge in the different disciplines, with the opportunity to specialise in four options in Key Stage 4. The information below gives an indication of what subjects’ students study whilst in the Academy:
A small number of students need further ‘catch up’ intervention focused on improving their literacy skills and will have additional English and Maths instead of studying modern foreign languages.
Please also note that we are currently in the process of reviewing the current curriculum offer. For additional information linked to specific subjects, please contact the relevant Head of Department or the Assistant Principal, Miss Tidbury (firstname.lastname@example.org)
