Curriculum Statement

We are proud of our broad, balanced curriculum that aims to equip every child with the knowledge, skills and understanding to make a positive, ambitious next step in the world.

We place great emphasis on acquiring and mastering core skills in English and Maths, aiming to raise standards and equip students for life after Erdington Academy.

We ensure that all students have the opportunity to encounter the full range of subjects to enjoy new experiences in the humanities as well as linguistic, mathematical, scientific, technical, artistic and physical learning. We also place a strong emphasis on nurturing the spiritual, moral, social and cultural development of students and British values, particularly through the Learning For Life programme and our vertical tutoring sessions, which aims to contribute to students’ welfare, behaviour and well-being.

Our Key Stage 4 curriculum (year 9,10 & 11) is diverse and personalised. We aim for most students to achieve the English Baccalaureate. We offer a range of academic and vocational subjects to students.

We value the importance of strong literacy and communication skills in our students. We aim to develop these skills by reading daily for extended periods of time , and we place an emphasis on developing Oracy skills during speaking activities.
