At Cramlington our students follow a two week cycle consisting of one hour lessons running across a five period day.
You can view how our curriculum supports our students throughout their time at Cramlington Learning Village by viewing our curriculum breakdown . This lists what students are learning in all subject areas from KS3 onwards on a term by term basis.
Year 7/8/9 KS3 Curriculum Structure
Our KS3 curriculum offers a broad selection of subjects that equip our students for their journey onto GCSEs and beyond. As well as a strong core curriculum we also offer students new ways of learning. In years 7 and 8, students study Create which covers Music, Media and Drama, allowing students to stretch their imaginations and apply their creativity in new ways. In year 9, students study Enterprise, this encompasses business and enterprise skills and challenges as well as developing ICT skills. At KS3 students also study Secure where they can experience new areas of learning, such as cookery or Spanish; or catch up on areas in which they are weaker; and for our more able students to take on additional challenges.
