School Curriculum

Our school curriculum is divided into three stages through ages 11-18 (National Curriculum Years 7 to 13).

We have five lessons per day, each of 60 minutes duration. There are 25 lessons in the week.

Our curriculum meets the requirements of the National Curriculum and incorporates policies of the Governing Body and the Conwy Education Authority. Copies of National Curriculum Orders, school policies, and the curriculum statement of Conwy County Borough Education Authority are available for inspection at the school.

The Sixth Form

A large proportion of Year 11 pupils return to the Ysgol Aberconwy Sixth Form to undertake one or two year courses. The majority undertake courses which lead to four AS level subjects. An extensive range of courses are offered, including subjects in collaboration with other providers within Conwy.
