Our Curriculum Plan
Key Stage 4 (Year 10-11)
When students come to make their options choices for Years 10 and 11, we offer an even wider selection of courses to suit all interests and aspirations. We ensure that all students pursue an ambitious and wide subject offer, with strong encouragement to continue to pursue the ‘facilitating’ A Level subjects and the subjects which make up the EBacc. We also offer a suite of relevant vocational subjects to ensure that all students have relevant and effective pathways to support them to their eventual destinations. All students make four choices – three others if they pursue the Single Sciences.
Below is summary of our Key Stage 4 curriculum, including the different subjects that we offer inside and outside of the core curriculum.
Core subjects - all students
Optional Subjects - EBacc suite
Optional Subjects - other options
The curriculum is based on strong work with exam boards and continually refined and reflected upon by our Curriculum Leaders. It is further underpinned by an assembly rota and form time curriculum, and with a vast array of opportunities for extra-curricular learning and intervention towards success in exams. We continue to deliver our PSHE curriculum to all students but do this through a series of planned mornings throughout the academic year. We also have a significant Careers curriculum which involves significant contact with external employers.
