School Prospectus - Academic Structure

Academic Structure

The academic reputation of Salendine Nook High is successfully established. At every level, the school is organised to provide its students with the opportunity to attain the highest possible standards. All students have the opportunity to study ten full subjects to GCSE (or Level 2 equivalent).

Academic work is organised through subject departments. Students in Year 7 are setted for
most subjects and taught in mixed ability for others. The Additional Needs Department
organises help for students in the areas where specific learning needs have emerged.

A foundation group is taught in Years 7 and 8 to improve English and Mathematics skills for targeted students. Four times during the school year, internal assessments are completed to provide information about individual students. This information is sent to parents in the form of a Progress Report. In Year 8, students make their individual subject choices for GCSE and/or vocational study. Each student is interviewed and there is close parental liaison before final choices are made.

During Years 10 and 11, students are given advice by school careers staff. There is close liaison with the local FE and Sixth Form colleges. There is also a Careers Fair and opportunities for Work Related Learning.
