Key Stage 4

Our curriculum offer for Years 9, 10 and 11 is both diverse and balanced whilst supporting our vision ‘to equip all students with the knowledge to lead and skills to succeed’. 
 
All students follow a core curriculum of English (Language and Literature), Mathematics and Combined Science (Biology, Physics and Chemistry) as well as being asked to select either Geography or History. Physical Education, which is not assessed, completes the core foundation of studies on their timetable. In addition to this students are required to choose three additional subjects. In making their selections students should seek a balance of subjects that will provide a broad and interesting curriculum, as well as ensuring they are well prepared for the next stage of their life post 16. These will be from a list of subjects presented in blocks.
 
Students are encouraged to take responsibility for their own learning throughout Key Stage 4. In order to be successful and fulfil their potential, students will be required to undertake study outside of lesson time. Throughout the Key Stage students will be required to take regular tests and assessments to help them be aware of their own progress as well as essential preparation for the terminal examinations they will sit at the end of Year 11.
