A broad and balanced curriculum preparing children for life’s challenges.
Our Key Stage 2 Curriculum...
The King James Academy is proud to be developing an exciting and challenging curriculum for all our students from Year 5 and beyond. We are committed to providing a broad and balanced diet to enable students to prepare for the next stage in their learning whatever their passions and ambitions.
Students’ timetables are made up of 25 one hour lessons a week covering a range of subjects from the core curriculum of English, Maths and Science and subjects such as Design Technology, Music and Computer Science. Contrary to the national trend, we are placing an increasing focus on Modern Foreign Languages, believing this to be vital in supporting our students to become global citizens. Students spend an additional 25 minutes a day in form time where they have the opportunity to develop skills to support their learning both in and out of the classroom.
We believe that knowing our students well allows us to maximise their potential in all subjects, whether it be through using Accelerated Reader to boost literacy levels, targeted intervention sessions or in-class support.
Our Key Stage 2 curriculum allows our students to begin studying subjects such as Spanish and Design Technology from an early age and yet maintains a primary ethos through students having approximately half of their lessons with their form teacher. Given this and specialist teachers working in specialist rooms, our students thrive and have the confidence to take on new challenges.
