Curriculum

Our curriculum is designed to inspire and challenge, to promote academic rigour along with health and fitness, to develop leadership skills and develop our pupils into well rounded citizens. The School Values and British Values are a central part of everything that we do at Broadway. These are developed through our Personal Development Programme, along which includes work related learning, enrichment and extra-curricular activities.

In Years 7 and 8 Broadway Academy pupils study a range of subjects including English, Mathematics, Science, Computing and PE.  Beyond this core, Geography, History and Religious Education are taught to all.  Every pupil also studies a modern foreign language from Arabic, French, Spanish or German.  Creative skills are developed through Art, Drama and Music.  Food Technology, Graphics, Resistant Materials and Textiles are delivered through our Design Technology programme. In addition to these academic studies pupils are encouraged to take up a wide range of extra- curricular activities, participate in hillwalking, take a junior leadership award and develop their public speaking skills by studying for an oracy qualification.
