Our KS4 curriculum offers a varied combination of GCSE’s with vocational subjects such as BTEC’s which enables students to progress appropriately.
A core curriculum of English, English Literature, Mathematics, Science (Triple, Double or BTEC) and RE will be studied by all students, resulting in GCSE or GCSE equivalent qualifications.
Other statutory subjects such as PE and Personal Social Health and Citizenship Education (PSHCE) are delivered throughout KS4. Students who show an aptitude for PE are invited to study an additional GCSE in this subject.
All students select a choice of three more subjects from a range of GCSE or vocational courses. Some students may follow a fourth subject in, for example, a language, in period 6 time.
We believe that a learner will develop more effectively when they have an enriched experience and we offer a wide and exciting range of extra curricular activities that we expect all students to full participate in.
School operates a 1 week timetable – 5 one hour lessons a day, 25 per week. PSHCE is delivered over two drop down days across the academic year.
