Key Stage 4

In Years 10 and 11, we offer a wide range of courses alongside our core curriculum of English, Maths, Science and PE.

There are a range of GCSE qualifications and other accredited courses to meet the needs of all our students and each course offered has a clear progression pathway to Post-16 education and employment. We place a strong emphasis on ensuring academic rigour with our curriculum; because of this, we are able to offer the majority of our students the opportunity to gain the English Baccalaureate (EBACC) qualification excluding our current Year 10 and 11.

All students study at English Language and Literature, Maths GCSE, at least two Science GCSEs and PE. Alongside this students have 3 option choices with all students having to study at least one other EBACC subject. Some students have to choose a language and a humanities subject, this is directed by their internally assessed progress within school. The subjects the school offers at Key Stage 4 are:

  • Languages: French and Spanish
  • Humanities: Geography and History
  • Expressive Arts: Photography, Art and Design and Performing Arts
  • Social Sciences: Psychology, Sociology and Childcare
  • Digital Technologies and Business: Travel and Tourism, Media Studies, Business Studies, Computer Science and Creative iMedia
  • Technologies: Hospitality and Catering, Food and Nutrition, Product Design and Textiles

More curriculum content, including interactive lessons and resources, can be found on our school website via Google Classroom (which requires a school login). For further information regarding the curriculum in Years 10 and 11, please contact:
