At Medina College we provide a broad and balanced curriculum because we understand that students need to be engaged in their learning and able to follow courses which they are interested in if they are to achieve their potential.
Throughout KS3 all students receive four hours of English, three hours of maths and three hours of science tuition. Additionally students have between one and two hours of modern foreign languages, history, geography, religious education, technology and information communication technology. All students have two hours of PE per week and three hours of creative arts (drama, dance, music and art). Where necessary students may have a tailored curriculum which increases the amount of literacy support they receive in order to prepare them for Key Stage 4. Personal, Social and Health Education (PSHE) is delivered through six ‘one off’ days spread throughout the academic year.
In Year 10 and 11 students continue their studies in English, maths, science, RE and PE but also have an opportunity choose three additional subjects. These subjects are chosen in January of Year 9 and include subjects they have already experienced as well as new areas of study such as business and media. The College also runs two specialist courses in hair and beauty and carpentry for students who wish to pursue a vocational route. All students have the opportunity to complete the English Baccalaureate in KS4.
