YEAR 9 CURRICULUM

The GST Curriculum

The Griffin Schools Trust (GST) is a family of primary and secondary schools in the Midlands and the South East of England. We are committed to providing an outstanding independent-style education for all students, predicated on breadth and excellence. All schools provide a rich programme of free extra-curricular activities, create an involving and stimulating physical environment and build a staff team of interesting people who are motivated to advance their own knowledge and skills as well as their pupils’ achievement.

 GST schools do not teach young people to know their place, but rather to discover their talents and passions and to take their places in society, making a difference through leadership and service wherever their futures may take them.

 

The Year 9 Curriculum at The Lammas School

Year 9 is a pivotal year in your child’s education: they have consolidated the knowledge and skills developed and built upon in Year 7 and Year 8 and are now poised to access the next stage of their education, which will include national examinations at the end of Year 11 and UVI. Year 9 is the final year of Key Stage 3 and the year in which students decide, with the advice of their teachers, which subjects they should continue into GCSE. Students need to use Year 9 to develop the maturity required for GCSE.

The content of the Year 9 curriculum continues the strong focus on English, mathematics and science started in years 7 and 8. They also experience the same range of practical and creative subjects including design technology, art, music and drama every week that will feed into their options choices for Key Stage 4.

 

Subjects

Each week students in year 9 study the following subjects:

  • Art
  • Computer Science
  • Design Technology
  • Drama
  • English
  • Ethics
  • Food and Nutrition
  • French or Spanish
  • Geography
  • History
  • Mathematics
  • Music
  • Physical Education
  • Religious Studies
