Foundation Directorate

The foundation directorate is made up of a wide range of subjects.  The purpose of this directorate is to give students learning experiences that will stay with them for life.

This is an area which is growing year on year as we cater for the desires of our young men – for example the re-introduction of Art after many years away.  In each subject area, students experience real life and learn about the impact of modern day societal issues and how they can contribute to it in a positive way.

The popularity of this area of school life is ever growing with each subject having at least one option class and in some cases 4 option classes in year 10 – this is testament to the learning experiences our boys enjoy throughout the first three years at the academy.
