Curriculum Overview

The curriculum at Harris Boys’ Academy East Dulwich is designed to ensure that each student is educated and supported to succeed in the world today in line with the latest educational research.

This page contains an overview of curriculum for each Key Stage. Details of the curriculum for each subject can be viewed on the Subjects pages. Our curriculum policy can be downloaded from the Teaching and Learning page.


Key Stage 3 - Years 7-8

The Key Stage 3 curriculum is followed by Years 7 and 8 and is designed to provide depth and breadth of study whilst ensuring that appropriate time can be devoted to Mathematics, English and Science.

Our intention is to give students a ‘taste’ of as many subjects as possible, whilst preparing them for, and informing them about, their GCSE options. Literacy and numeracy skills are developed in every subject and across the curriculum.

All students have a broad weekly curriculum offer of English, Maths, Science, Geography, History, Spanish, Religious Studies, ICT skills, Physical Education, Design and Technology, Food Technology, Art, Dance and Music. Find out more about Key Stage 3.


Key Stage 4 - Years 9-11

All students follow a core curriculum of English Language, English Literature, Maths, Double Science, either Geography or History and BTEC Sport. The majority of our boys will also have a Modern Foreign Language (MFL) as part of their core curriculum.  This is moving towards government target of 75% by 2020.

Our students select their additional subjects to make up their curriculum. This selection is made up of vocational courses and other academic subjects. The list of optional subjects is extensive and will give the boys a real opportunity to experience a subject that they may then want to go off and study at university. Find out more about Key Stage 4.


Key Stage 5 - Years 12-13

At Key Stage 5 we are part of the highly successful Harris Federation Sixth Form with over 120 students studying at Harris Boys’ Academy East Dulwich.


Nurturing support

We know that some students struggle to access the broad curriculum we offer so we ensure they are given a specific programme, allowing us to give them the appropriate guidance they need. We are proud that our academy welcomes students of all previous abilities and we passionately believe that previous learning should not be a barrier to the future. Teachers leading this class are excellent Quality First Teachers, supported by a great SEN team of teaching assistants and other professionals.

In Key Stage 3 this small group (less than 10% of a Year group) follow a similar curriculum to their peers, with the exception of MFL. Students in this class have extra English and Maths support as well as having opportunities to explore other creative subjects. They are never denied entry to MFL and many complete this through community languages or we facilitate their involvement, in consultation with parents if appropriate.

In Key Stage 4 this small group again follow a very similar curriculum, having the chance to choose options with all other students. 

All students within these groups are regularly reviewed and changes made where appropriate.


Extended curriculum

Our curriculum is not just about the academic subjects students study.

Personal, Social and Health Education (PSHE) is delivered through a combination of the tutorial programme, the assembly programme and also through the academy's 'Renaissance Days' which run during the course of each year.

Careers education, so vitally important for our young people today, is also taught through ‘Renaissance Days’ and the assembly programme. This includes guest presentations from our staff on their former careers - a very popular part of the programme making use of the vast career experience we have within the academy. In addition, students in Year 7-9 receive specific careers-based lessons during form time.  Finally, we employ a careers advisor to work closely with our Year 11 students at this vital time in their educational journey.

Our SMSC curriculum is delivered through our Building Cultural Capital form time sessions. This also includes a focus on fundamental British values. The Creative Horizons weeks we set aside to giving students cultural opportunities including a range of trips and special guest visitors further helps us broaden the minds of our young students.
