Introduction to the HIAC Curriculum

Introduction to the HIAC Curriculum

The curriculum will focus on firstly on making sure that students develop a deep body of knowledge. This knowledge will primarily come from the national curriculum. The focus in our curriculum planning will be the development of subject-specific disciplinary knowledge. We then plan to ensure that students develop the subject skills needed to apply and make sense of what the knowledge that they have gained.

The HIAC Curriculum intends to prepare our students, in rapidly changing world, for the next step in their lives. To encourage our develop confidence and talent in our students to ensure they are well-equipped to excel in higher or further education, training, and ready to meet the challenges of employment.

We believe that the HIAC curriculum should provide students with a broad range of educational experiences and opportunities. Through the academic curriculum and wider school life, we intend to guarantee that all HIAC students continue their development into well-rounded citizens, capable of contributing positively to their communities.

You can find our full Curriculum Policy here

Key Stage 4

Students at Harris Invictus Academy Croydon, from this academic year, will start their GCSE is in Year 10. GCSE courses will form the basis of the curriculum at Key Stage 4.  Good advice and guidance on option choices is crucial at this stage.  In the spring term of year 9, the Academy will be addressing “choices and pathways”. Additionally, the Academy staff will interview students, where possible and parents/carers will have the opportunity to receive up-to-date advice and guidance in order to support their son’s/daughter’s options at this stage.  Directors of Learning will support students in making their choices and will use Academy data and other information to help advise them on the most appropriate choices.  We anticipate that students will be allowed to choose from the option blocks set up and where possible all students should be given their first choice.

Core subjects that are compulsory for all students at Key Stage 4 are:

  • English
  • Maths
  • Science
  • Religious Studies
  • Physical Education

 

Students will be able to choose from the following options:
