Key Stage 4 Curriculum

A broad and balanced curriculum is offered to all of our students: underpinned by the academic core of subjects (English, Maths, Science, Humanities and Languages), learning is enhanced by the study of the Arts, computing, technology and physical education, offering our students a course of study in which academic rigour fully prepares them for further education and university.

In Key Stage 4 (years 10 & 11), all pupils follow an academic core GCSE pathway and then have an enrichment of a choice of subjects from the Arts and Media field. 98% of our pupils go onto further education stuyding A-level at college.
