Specialisms

Red House Academy teaches a broad and rich curriculum. Engineering is the subject specialism based on a study of Maths, Science, Design & Technology, ICT and Art, underpinned by a focus on English and Literacy development.

The specialism creates pathways across the curriculum and makes connections with all other subjects to create a vibrant and positive Academy community. This is supported by state of the art facilities, in all curriculum areas, which excite and enrich the wider community.

Learning and teaching ensures that students develop an enthusiasm and confidence around all subjects in ways that will enable them to move forward into further and higher education according to their individual abilities, aptitudes and ambitions. Our wider aim is to increase the post-16 participation rate in all subjects. Red House Academy strives for continuous improvement in attainment through the sharing of good practice across all curriculum areas.

Our use of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) is extensive and well considered. Employers increasingly seek candidates who are equipped with a wide range of skills and competencies for a wide range of jobs.

The focus at Red House Academy is to address the needs of 21st Century organisations looking to recruit the next generation of talented young people from our local community.

We work alongside relevant partners to provide students with the appropriate careers guidance. There is an option for more able and talented students to start Key Stage 4 courses in Year 9. Close partnerships with our sponsors, together with the wider community, when combined with the first class facilities, give the Academy the opportunity to be a Centre of Excellence.
