At Abbey College, we aim to give the pupils a broad and balanced curriculum to ensure that each area of learning and experience is given appropriate attention. We want the pupils to be able to make informed and realistic choices at all stages. We hope that their enjoyment of our curriculum will encourage them to take up the challenge of lifelong learning and enable them to be resilient to with future changes in society, technology and career patterns. It is our intention that every child fulfils their potential and to this end tailored learning programmes, appropriate stretch and challenge, opportunities to have a say in their learning and range of extra-curricular learning options are on offer to facilitate the growth of existing skills and the nurturing of new ones. So our pupils are educated to be active and effective citizens who have qualifications which give them choices, and the competences to choose well in the future.

In addition to the core and English Baccalaureate (EBacc) subjects, students study subjects around enterprise, the creative and expressive arts, allied with our extensive co-curricular offer. Our curriculum is designed to develop students to reach their full potential, academically, spiritually, culturally and morally. All students, in years 7 to 11 follow a two week timetable with twenty five lessons every week.

Year 7 and 8 students are taught the KS3 curriculum and aspects of the KS4 curriculum in order to promote fluency and mastery. During year 8, students make option choices for a start at GCSE courses in year 9. In addition to their option choices, students in years 9 to 11 study the core subjects: English, Maths, Science, Religious Education and Physical Education.
