Our curriculum

In This Section

At Walton we provide a broad and balanced curriculum to support all of our students in achieving their full potential. Their successful future is our concern. We value all academic, creative and vocational subjects and are proud to offer a wide range of relevant and engaging subjects to all our students.

In Years 7 and 8, students follow core studies in English, maths and science and a rich and varied curriculum that includes philosophy & ethics, drama, dance and music, as well as visual arts and modern languages.

In Year 9, students then specialise in four subjects, in addition to their core studies, following a wide range of inspiring courses such as triple science, health and social care, dance, drama, humanities, philosophy & ethics and food & nutrition. We ensure that students can follow a variety of combinations of courses, including access to the English Baccalaureate (Ebacc).

Our sixth form prepares all students for the next steps in their career. A combination of highly relevant vocational and academic courses enables students to go onto further study at university or into employment. English literature, mathematics, the sciences, criminology, photography and history continue to be popular choices while some of our most successful students have followed the visual arts and performing arts routes.
