Our Curriculum

Pendle Vale College offers students a full curriculum entitlement at Key Stages 3 and 4 as follows:


•At KS3, this is a transitional model with English, Maths and Science following a new KS3 curriculum from 2014. The new schemes of work for these subjects are available on the subject page. Foundation subjects have revised their Year 7 curriculum in light of the fact Year 7 in 2014 will not have followed a new KS2 and all subjects follow the National Curriculum in Years 7 and 8. In Year 9, students begin GCSE learning in Geography, History, RS, Computing and Science.  The overviews for routes for KS3 can be found below.


The formal options process takes place in Year 9 and new course for KS4 begin at the start of Year 10.
