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.

  • In Years 10 and 11, everyone in Pathway A studies English, English Literature, Maths, a Modern Foreign Language, Humanities and Science (through either a combined or ‘separates’ course). In addition, students have 2 Option choices from a range of vocational, technical and academic subjects.
  • In Pathways B, C and D everyone studies English, English Literature, Maths and Science (through either a combined or ‘separates’ course). In addition, students have a choice from Triple Science, Computer Science, French, Spanish, History and Geography as well as 3 further choices from a range of vocational, technical and academic subjects in different disciplines.


Students will be supported and guided to make the most appropriate choice.
