The aim of our curriculum is to unlock our students' academic and personal potential: raising aspirations, powering social mobility and enabling all students to go to a university or a career of their choice. Our curriculum model allows us to ensure all of our students have the opportunity to experience a breadth of subjects in depth and detail.
Below is a table that illustrates the number of lessons students have per subject per week.
|Academic Year 2021-22||Number of lessons per subject per week|

Students in Key Stage 5 have a free option choice from over the 30 courses we offer at Windsor Sixth Form. Students are then issued with their personal timetable that meets their requested subjects. Each student therefore follows their own personal pathway that is made up from the elements below. The vast majority of our students will complete a minimum of 747.5 guided learner hours.
