The Curriculum at Chipping Sodbury School
Chipping Sodbury School aims to foster a love of learning by offering a broad and balanced curriculum at a level that is accessible yet challenging, enabling each child to achieve at the highest possible level, develop relevant skills and interests, and to stimulate, engage and excite.
The curriculum is organised into a two week timetable. Students have 25 lessons per week in Key Stage 3 and 4. The Sixth Form are also timetabled over 25 periods, but some of these lessons are independent study periods. GCSE Options take place in Term 3 of Year 9. In Key Stage 4 students follow a statutory (Physical Education, Religious Education, and Cooperative Learning) and core (Mathematics, English Language and Literature and Science) curriculum. This is then supplemented by four option blocks with students selecting one subject from each of these blocks. The Sixth Form offers a wide choice of academic A Level subjects with some high quality vocational subjects offered.
