Year 7 Curriculum

The Rural Enterprise Academy is a free school with a specialised curriculum focused around the environment and land-based sectors. Our pupils choose us as they have an interest in these areas and potentially want to develop a career from this interest. We offer a broad and ambitious curriculum to all our pupils which is focused on preparing them for their future career choices as well as challenging and informing them about current issues within these sectors.

We are committed to offering a three-year KS3 curriculum where pupils will access a broad range of subjects. Our curriculum offers lessons in traditional, academic subjects such as English, maths, science, humanities and PE as well as creative, technological and environmental curriculum arcs which are designed to develop our pupils understanding of the school’s specialism in land-based and environment sectors. Further details about the curriculum arcs can be found below:
