Sackville School’s Curriculum

Sackville offers a broad and balanced values led curriculum providing our students with the skills and knowledge to succeed in an ever changing world. Our rich and diverse curriculum provides experiences that will challenge individuals, inspire ambition and develop the character and mind-set needed for success.

At KS3 our students follow the national curriculum in all core and foundation subjects. We also provide an alternative curriculum for those students who have not made the required progress in literacy and numeracy. This tailored curriculum improves students’ literacy and numeracy skills, thus allowing them to access our vast and challenging KS4 curriculum. Alongside this we provide 1:1 tutoring for other students over short periods to boost literacy and numeracy.

Our varied KS4 curriculum allows students to opt for a wide variety of subjects, both academic and practical. Alongside our core subjects, students can choose to study GCSEs and BTEC qualifications thus personalising the curriculum to meet their needs. Those students who have more vocational interests can access college courses run by Central Sussex College. Students who require additional support in English and maths can follow an alternative curriculum focusing on these key subjects to ensure they leave Sackville with good qualifications in these life changing skills.

Sitting alongside our academic curriculum is our personal development curriculum. This curriculum promotes fundamental British values thus providing our students with the personal and social skills to become good citizens and the guidance to live fulfilling lives and follow rewarding careers.

The majority of our students continue to study with us till they are 18 or 19. In our sixth form, students can choose from more than forty level 3 (A level or equivalent) courses. For those who do not get enough GCSEs for level 3 study, we offer a level 3 booster course comprising GCSEs in maths and English and BTEC qualifications in ICT and business.
