Key Stage 4

    Years 9, 10 & 11

    We have a dynamic and innovative curriculum on offer at Key Stage 4 which was judged as outstanding by Ofsted.

    Towards the end of Year 8 all pupils choose their options and are placed on a learning route. The route will be personalised and appropriate to each pupil’s needs and aspirations.

    All pupils will study a core curriculum of English, mathematics, science, religious studies, games, PSHE, citizenship, work-related learning and enterprise. This provides a broad and balanced foundation appropriate for almost any 16-19 pathway.

    Almost all pupils study a curriculum of academic GCSE subjects, including history and/or geography. We believe these traditional and academic qualifications provide the best opportunity for future success.

    I have been given the chance to do extra GCSEs such as further mathematics.
