What will my child be learning in the 2021 22 school year?

During his or her time at Bamburgh School, your child will be following an individual pathway through each curriculum subject, depending on his or her aptitudes and abilities.

To find out what your child will be studying in 2021 22, first use the list below to find out which Stage (for primary classes) or Year (for secondary classes) your child’s class is working at, and also the Pathway for your child’s class (there are 3 possible pathways: Core, Core+ or Core++).

Bluebell Class                                  following EY Curriculum for all  subjects

Honeysuckle Class                          following EY Curriculum for all subjects

Daisy Class                                      following Stage 2 Core Pathway for all subjects

Holly Class                                       following Stage 3 Core Pathway for all subjects

Hawthorn Class                                following Stage 3 Core + Pathway for all subjects

Sycamore Class                               following Stage 4 Core Pathway for all subjects

Willow Class                                     following Stage 5 Core Pathway for all subjects

Mulberry Class                                 following Stage 6 Core Pathway for all subjects

7JC                                                   following Year 7 Core + Pathway for all subjects

8CW                                                 following Year 8 Core Pathway for all subjects

8DH                                                  following Year 8 Core + Pathway for all subjects

9JS                                                   following Year 9 Core Pathway for all subjects

9AMT                                                following Year 9 Core + Pathway for all subjects

(In Years 10 and 11, pathways for individual pupils are linked to the final exam that he or she is are working towards and not the class group. Your child’s form tutor can give you details of your child’s individual pathway on request)

For all pupils up to Year 9, once you know your child’s Stage/Year and Pathway, open the Curriculum Map for the subject that you are interested in, and look at the row on the chart which shows this Stage/Year and Pathway. This row will give you details of the topics/units taught to your child’s class group in 2021 22.

For example, if your child is in Holly Class this year, then they will be studying the units shown for the Stage 3 Core Pathway. This means that, in Science, he or she would first study Light and Shadow, then Magnets and Forces and, finally, Rocks and Soils.
