At the Skegness Academy, we live our values of excellence, respect, personal responsibility and gratitude, which allows us to equip every student with the knowledge, skills and experience necessary to achieve happiness, success and fulfilment.
We recognise that these goals are unique to the individual and our community, and our curriculum provides a broad and balanced base of knowledge which enables students to aspire to, and succeed in, their own definition of a happy, successful, fulfilled life.
Students study the full range of national curriculum subjects consisting of: English, Maths, Science, History, Geography, RE, French, Performing Arts, Music, Computing, Textiles, Dance and Food Technology, Art and PE in order to build a strong base of core knowledge. There is a focus on developing the literacy, numeracy & study skills required for GCSE. Students also have a 60 minute PHSE lesson which includes our RSE curriculum.
Students typically study 9 subjects in depth: these include GCSE subjects and Vocational subjects. Critical thinking, problem-solving and communication skills develop alongside a deepening knowledge base. Our careers curriculum aims to give students the chance to explore their strengths and empower them to make informed choices about future plans in further education, or employment with training.
Students in year 12 and 13 focus on 3 or 4 subjects in great depth and with increasing independence. Students are role models and are encouraged to take on leadership responsibilities within the academy. We aim for all sixth formers to leave with the skills and attributes necessary for success in higher education or employment with training.
The sixth form enrichment programme or ‘Super Curriculum’ gives students valuable skills and confidence, along with transferable skills, which will help with personal development and future employment or education through programmes such as Health and fitness, Mental Health and Wellbeing, Creative Learning and Cooking.
Please note: Curriculum plans are constantly under review and are re-sequenced following key assessment points to ensure any gaps in knowledge and understanding are addressed.
