KS3 Offer

At Harris Academy Ockendon, every student, irrespective of starting point or individual learning needs, will be provided full access to the curriculum across all subjects.

Students in years 7 to 9 study the National Curriculum, which has been interpreted, designed and sequenced by subject experts to prepare students for their next steps. Subjects such as Drama, whilst not forming part of the National Curriculum, are core parts of a weekly timetable for our students at key stage three as we understand how it contributes to the personal development of students in areas such as communication, empathy, discipline and emotional intelligence. 

Our curriculum is knowledge-rich and delivers broad, diverse and ambitious knowledge, invaluable for ensuring all children are ‘in the know’ and are taken beyond their everyday experience. We believe our curriculum will enable all students to excel, not only in public examinations, but in their interactions with the world, ensuring they are prepared for their next pathway and for them to lead happy, successful lives.

Details of the curriculum for each subject can be viewed on our Subjects page, but a summary of the subjects all students attend includes:

  • English (Language and Literature)
  • Mathematics
  • Combined Science
  • Art
  • Computer Science
  • Drama
  • Design Technology and Food Studies
  • Modern Foreign Languages (French and Spanish)
  • Geography
  • History
  • Music
  • Physical Education
  • Citizenship and Religious Education (CRE)
  • Religious Studies
  • Careers education
  • Personal, Social, Health and Economics education (PSHE)
  • Sex and Relationships education (SRE)
  • Enrichment
