At Hurworth School we believe that every student should have access to a broad and balanced curriculum, which will meet their future needs in education, training and the work place. The curriculum is designed to prepare students for their future roles as workers, parents / guardians and members of the wider community.

Key Stage 3

Students entering the school at the beginning of Year 7 study all aspects of the National Curriculum. All students study the following subjects throughout their first three years in the school:

English, Mathematics, Science, French, Design and Technology, History, Geography, Religious Studies, Drama, Dance, Music, Art, Information Communication Technology, Physical Education, Personal, Social, Health and Citizenship, Education (PSHCE)

We offer a second modern foreign language (German or Spanish) in Year 8 and 9. Careers information is provided in all year groups.

Throughout Key Stage 3 students also experience a PSHCE period once a week. During this lesson aspects of citizenship are studied as well as time spent with the tutor reviewing progress, setting individual targets and developing further studying skills.
