Our Curriculum

Wembley High offers a rich and extensive curriculum.

Our fundamental belief is that all students are entitled to an individually tailored and holistic education. We therefore encourage students to sit exams as soon as they are ready, and offer a wide range of additional qualifications and extra-curricular enrichment to provide a rounded learning experience.

At Key Stage 3 (Years 7 – 8), we place great emphasis on giving all students a firm grounding in the core subject areas of English, Maths and Science. Pupils are streamed by ability in their classes, and further setting takes place in English, maths and science so that everyone receives appropriately tailored tuition. 

At Key Stage 4 (Years 9 – 11), we provide an even more personalised curriculum which is geared towards students’ individual aptitudes and skills. The curriculum in each pathway consists of the core subjects and a range of choices that allow pupils to progress on to courses at Key Stage 5. As a unique feature of our curriculum, we encourage pupils to sit exams when they are ready for them and many will finish before Year 11. Those that achieve high grades then have the opportunity to pursue additional courses or higher study in a wide range of subjects.

The primary aim of our Sixth Form (Year 12 - 13)  is to prepare our pupils for the transition from school to university. Pupils have a wide variety of choice with most pupils taking 4 AS – Levels in year 12 followed by 3 A – Levels in year 13 and the vast majority of our students go on to gain places at leading universities.

Mayor's Achievement Award 2017

Mayor's Achievement Award 2017 Wembley High Technology College in Brent has been celebrated under a new programme set up by the Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, to recognise exceptional schools in the capital. Schools for Success celebrates schools that are achieving academic success with all their pupils, in particular disadvantaged or vulnerable students who started off behind their peers, or those affected by circumstances that could have an impact on their learning. In 2016 there were more than 39,000 pupils at the end of primary school[i] and 30,000 at the end of secondary school[ii] who did not reach expected levels. The new programme creates a network for these schools to share best practice with others across London through events, school visits and online profiles. London’s schools are outperforming the rest of the country with last year’s GCSE results showing the city as the top English region for the ninth consecutive year.[iii] Wembley High has been recognised in the Schools for Success Awards, because of the high levels of progress and achievement of pupils. The Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, said: 'Congratulations to Wembley High Technology College for its outstanding achievements and for the hard work of its pupils and teaching staff. London has some of the best schools in the country, and Schools for Success shows the huge difference good quality teaching can make to pupils who started off behind in their studies. By sharing best practice with other schools across the capital, we can help every young Londoner reach their full potential, and ensure no child is left behind.” [i] Mayor of London’s Annual Education Report 2017, p17 - https://www.london.gov.uk/sites/default/files/final_epi_edits_design_final_gla_annual_report_2017_0.pdf [ii] Analysis from DfE’s SFR03/2017: GCSE and equivalent results in England 2015/16 (revised) [iii] In 2008/9 London was joint top region, and then top region for the following years up until after 2016/17 Click here to view the certificate
