Subjects

Through a strong culture of excellence and standards, underpinned by Universal Sikh and British values, “Together As One” we will instill a love for learning and nurture all our pupils to:

  • Excel academically, personally and spiritually as lifelong learners
  • Think critically about the world they live in and contribute responsibly
  • Develop their talents and interests through a wide variety of co-curricular opportunities

We recognise that all of our learners will be different with regards to their interests and aspirations. At The Khalsa Academy Wolverhampton, we offer an academic and vocational/skills-based curriculum that includes a broad range of subjects at KS3 together with an enrichment programme and extra-curricular activities which will engage all our learners.

From Year 7, our learners will begin to build a portfolio of qualifications in the core subjects: Mathematics, English and Science as well as Foundation subjects.

We will offer every learner the opportunity to gain qualifications and excel in a Modern Foreign Language, Computing, Humanities and Art. Learners will also gain experience and certification in a range of trades and skills through Skills Lessons.
