THE SCHOOL CURRICULUM OFFERS TRADITIONAL ACADEMIC SUBJECTS AS WELL AS
CREATIVE, TECHNOLOGICAL, AND ENVIRONMENTAL STUDIES
The Rural Enterprise Academy is a truly unique secondary school which engages a full and challenging, environmentally focused, curriculum. Our curriculum offers lessons in traditional academic subjects such as English, maths, science, humanities, and PE as well as creative, technological (including IT) and environmental studies. Environmental studies include aspects of forest school, agriculture and animal care. These subjects are designed to develop our pupils’ understanding of land-based and environmental sectors: the school’s specialisms.
Our pupils choose us as they have an interest in environmental areas.
Year 7 student Ellie-Mae Wall said: “I helped my parents pick this school. I love the active side and getting to learn outside the classroom. I have made lots of friends who I’ll be friends with for life. The teachers have really made me feel welcome.”
We offer a broad and ambitious curriculum to all of our pupils, which is focused on preparing them for their future career choices, as well as challenging and informing them about current issues within these sectors.
At KS4, pupils will complete seven compulsory GCSEs: English Literature, English Language, Maths, Science (double award), Geography and R.E.; as well as a BTEC in Enterprise. They will also have the choice of an optional subject: Spanish, Technology, P.E. or Travel & Tourism, as well as a land-based option, from Animal Care, Agriculture or Land-based Studies, with our partners at South Staffordshire College.
