Our new innovative approach to the curriculum here at The Hazeley Academy seeks to unlock learners’ potential with the opportunity to study intensely within the Creativity Faculty.

It is the intention of our creative team for students to go on a learning journey through each of our subjects, developing a portfolio of work linked to a range of themes.  This will mean that every half term, the students will rotate around each of our creative departments, offering them the chance to immerse themselves within a subject for an extended period of time.

Our curriculum within both Years 7 and 8 are based on programmes of themes and will change every term.  A thematic scheme allows learners to make clear links between subjects and concepts.  This also allows the faculty to embark on links with core subjects such as English, Maths and Science.

Year 7 themes are as follows:

  • World
  • Into space
  • Myths and legends
  • War
  • Something from nothing
  • Working as a team

Year 8 themes are as follows:

  • Film/media
  • Musical theatre
  • Into the future
  • Superheroes
  • Step back in time
  • Something from nothing

By studying the Creativity subjects on a rotational timetable, this also gives the students strong grounding when it comes to making informed decisions regarding their GCSE options.
