The Curriculum at the RSA Academy is not solely based on subjects and their corresponding qualifications, it focuses on pupils’ whole learning experience. Since we opened we have developed our curriculum to transform the learning of students so that it can transform their lives.
The curriculum at the RSA Academy reflects the ethos and values of the RSA and the family of RSA academies within the Central RSA Academies Trust.
We believe that maintaining a broad and balanced curriculum across Key Stages 3 and 4 is vital to enable our pupils to be fully prepared for further study and the world of work. We have resisted the narrowing of the curriculum and, as such, our pupils are therefore able to choose a variety of subjects to study past the end of Key Stage 3.
In an increasingly competitive global employment market, we believe it is important that our pupils select a combination of subjects that gives them the best possible outcomes to allow them to take control of their future. The guide supplements the other documents available: the School Prospectus, the Key Stage 4 Options Booklet and the Sixth Form Prospectus.
