The Aylesbury Vale Academy

    Subject Overview

    The Academy’s curriculum helps students to recognise the relationships between traditional subjects and the wider world. Students will learn to combine relevant knowledge, experience and critical thinking to solve authentic problems.

    The curriculum also explicitly aims to develop intercultural awareness and students will learn about their own and others’ social and national cultures.

    Effective communication is fundamental to learning. A good command of one’s own language enables clear expression of ideas, attitudes and feelings. The learning of other languages extends that competence and teaches appreciation of different cultures and ways of thinking.

    The curriculum at the Academy incorporates the following compulsory areas of study for all students in Years 7-11.
