Curriculum KS4

During years 10 and 11 students follow the KS4 curriculum and work towards their GCSE qualifications. Each student will study the core subjects but they get to choose which other subjects they wish to take further depending on their interests and abilities.  

All students will be studying the core subjects and a selection from the optional subjects.

Year 9 parents’ evening is the starting point for this process. Your child’s subject teachers will be able to offer advice, based on their progress to date in each subject in order to help you and your child make an informed decision.

Options evening is another opportunity to speak with subject teachers and other key members of staff to allow you and your child to make the best decisions for their future. Prior to the options evening, a selection of parents and students may be invited to a meeting with a senior member of staff to discuss their options.  This member of staff can offer information, advice and guidance based on your child’s progress to date and their future ambitions to ensure that they are choosing the path that is right for them.
