In practice, The Ashley School is organised around a key stage approach to curriculum design and implementation. Although the school has pupils in the age range 9 – 16 (years 4 to 11), the pupils follow an integrated programme of core and foundation subjects that allows pupils to develop as they progress through the school. Throughout, pupils have opportunities to develop key skills in literacy and numeracy as well as more independent skills to prepare them for the Key Stage 4 Vocational Programme and Post 16 transition, most usually at Lowestoft College or Otley College. The school timetable is organised so that pupils, including those in primary can have specialist teacher subject input (for example Art, Design Technology, Physical Education and Music) from the very earliest age. In brief the curriculum structure can be seen below as well as the more detailed curriculum model.
