Below you will find an outline of the curriculum content delivered across the year. Please be aware that this is only an outline, and therefore at times content may cut across different half terms or may be moved as required. For a detailed breakdown of what you will be tested on in the assessment windows, please check the year group page.

Students cover 16 units in year 9. Each unit is linked to a career and the topics and content are interleaved to ensure revisiting of content and deepening of understanding. The content in Year 9 connects back to and builds on the study in Year 7 & 8.
