Core Curriculum

Our core academic curriculum offer focuses on English, Mathematics, Science, History and Art at qualification levels from Functional Skills through to GCSEs.  


Developing skills in literacy and numeracy underpin progress in all areas and the curriculum at the Brunel College ensures that every student in every key stage and year group, devotes at least 30% of their timetable to lessons in English and Mathematics. All students will take appropriate examinations in these subjects according to their individual ability, from Functional Skills at Level 1 through to GCSEs, in addition to English and Mathematics. All students also follow programmes of study in PSHE, citizenship and growth mindset.

To compliment this core curriculum a wide range of optional subjects are on offer to our Key Stage 4 students. Students have the choice to undertake additional GCSEs in Art, Science and History in conjunction with various iAchieve qualifications (Health and Fitness; Business Studies) and BTEC (Food and Nutrition).

At KS3, students have the opportunity to follow more creative subjects such as Art and Music.

All students also have regular sport and exercise sessions on their timetable.



Full details of performance of Brunel College students are available on the school and college performance tables.
