KS4 Curriculum

KS4 – Years 10 and 11

Our 2-year KS4 offer enables students to access a broad and balanced suite of qualifications that matches carefully their interests and ambitions.  This commitment enables them to develop the knowledge and skills from KS3 to achieve academic success in nationally recognised qualifications and be prepared for their personal journey to access the next stage of their learning in their choice of post-16 pathways.

In addition to the core subjects of English, Maths and Science, students can choose from a wide range of Option subjects during the Year 9 Options process so that:

  • all students can have the opportunity to achieve the Ebacc should they so choose;
  • students can select a curriculum that provides a range of choices and opportunities for post-16 study;
  • there is an opportunity to support some students with extra Mathematics and English lessons as necessary.

All students will study English, English Literature, Maths and Science (through either a combined or ‘separates’ course). In addition, students have four Options choices from a range of vocational, technical and academic subjects in different disciplines.
