The aim of the Grammar Stream is to deliver a rigorous and academically rich Key Stage 3 and GCSE curriculum so that all students can attend a University of their choice. All of the students who study in the Grammar Stream will leave with the very best grades in Mathematics, English literature, English language, Physics, Chemistry, Biology, History, Geography, French and other optional GCSEs. The Grammar Stream offers a unique offer in schooling, combining a single sex challenging academic curriculum with a mixed school environment for extra-curricular activities and social time.
At Glenmoor and Winton we believe lessons should have no distractions and that is why we enforce a two strikes policy regarding behaviour. This means that learning is at the centre of every lesson across the academies and students are taught in an exceptionally calm environment. Being taught with like-minded students in the grammar stream means that these students have an even more focused environment and have the opportunity for a greater level of challenge across their subjects.
The Grammar Stream is an academic stream of up to 30 boys and 30 girls. 30 is the maximum number in each class and includes those who have passed the local grammar school test. All students joining the academies in year 7 are invited to the Grammar Stream exam that will be held in April 2017. There is no movement in or out of the Grammar Stream over the course of the year with progress regularly reviewed by the Grammar Stream Coordinator.
