 Hodge Hill College Curriculum

The curriculum at Hodge Hill College aims to provide breadth and balance for all pupils at both key stage 3 and key stage 4. Pupils all undertake studies in the core subjects: English, mathematics and science, together with humanities, language, arts, creative, design and sports based subjects.  This is maintained at key stage four to ensure that pupils gain a balance of qualifications which will provide them with the widest possible opportunities for progression into sixth form.  This breadth also offers diverse opportunities for university, apprenticeship and employment choices.  Balance ensures doors are held open at all times to all pupils.

As a college we are committed to ensuring that pupils gain an understanding of the contribution the arts play to enriching their lives, and the key part they play in the national and global economy. Learning to contextualise our common history, geography and religious beliefs builds greater understanding,   character and stronger communities.  Finally, healthy bodies support healthy minds and as a college we believe, all our pupils need to understand how these two issues are intertwined.  Enabling all pupils to take charge of their health secures good learning and future economic security for our community.
