Year 7 and 8 Curriculum

The Hertswood Curriculum is founded on the concept of the Growth Mindset (Carol Dweck) and the idea that every student should be able to achieve their best with effort during their time at school.

All students begin year 7 with a broad curriculum including art, drama, music and design technology. The content and assessments in all lessons are based on GCSE specifications so that students can begin working towards GCSE from the beginning of their time at Hertswood.
