Key Stage 4 Options
All Key Stage 4 students follow a course leading to public examinations (GCSE or BTEC) in a range of subjects, including a minimum core of English, maths and science as well as non-examination courses in PE. PSHE is also taught during drop-down lessons and students will also complete work experience in year 10.
During year 9 students choose the subjects they will follow in years 10 and 11. Students follow one of three pathways leading to GCSE and vocational level 2 qualifications. Maths, English and science continue to be set. Optional subjects run across the entire year group and may be completely mixed ability.
