Over Years 7 to 10, students develop their understanding of microscopic and atomic structures; how systems at a range of scales are shaped by flows of energy and matter and interactions due to forces, and develop the ability to quantify changes and relative amounts.


In Year 7, students explore the diversity of life on Earth and continue to develop their understanding of the role of classification in ordering and organising information. They use and develop models such as food chains, food webs and the water cycle to represent and analyse the flow of energy and matter through ecosystems and explore the impact of changing components within these systems.


They consider the interaction between multiple forces when explaining changes in an object’s motion. They explore the notion of renewable and non-renewable resources and consider how this classification depends on the timescale considered.


They investigate relationships in the Earth, sun, moon system and use models to predict and explain events. Students make accurate measurements and control variables to analyse relationships between system components and explore and explain these relationships through increasingly complex representations.


Topics covered include:

  • Fractions, Decimals & Percentages
  • Financial Mathematics
  • Ratios & Rates
  • Algebraic Techniques
  • Indicies
  • Linear Relationships
  • Length, Area, Volume
  • Time
  • Triangles
  • Data Collection & Representation
  • Probability



The aim of English in Years 7 to 10 is to enable students to use, understand, appreciate, reflect on and enjoy the English language in a variety of texts and to shape meaning in ways that are imaginative, interpretive, critical and powerful.



Through responding to and composing a wide range of texts in context and through close study of texts, students will develop skills, knowledge and understanding in order to:

  • speak, listen, read, write, view and represent 

  • use language and communicate appropriately and effectively

  • think in ways that are imaginative, interpretive and critical

  • express themselves and their relationships with others and the world

  • learn and reflect on their learning through their study of English.


Topics covered include:

  • Understanding Media and Close Study of Shakespeare’s ‘Hamlet’

  • Texts Types and Stereotypes

  • Poetry and Texts Through Time

  • Texts and Society / Critical Thinking
