Our Curriculum

At Tenbury High Ormiston Academy we operate a one week timetable based on six lessons of fifty minutes per day.  There are 30 lessons each week. Citizenship is delivered across the curriculum and through Citizenship Days (one per term).

The school believes that every pupil is entitled to a broad and balanced curriculum. Everyone currently takes:

  • English (4 periods/week)
  • Mathematics (3 periods/week)
  • Double Award Science (6 periods/week)
  • PE (2 periods/week)
