Key Stage Four

In Years 10 and 11students begin their GCSE studies. All students continue to study a broad range of subjects. The Key Stage 4 curriculum has been designed to enable all students to achieve the English Baccalaureate (EBacc). The subjects which make up this pathway are:

  • English
  • Mathematics
  • A Modern Foreign Language (French / German / Spanish)

The Department for Education recommends this combination of subjects as they provide students with an important range of knowledge and skills, and help to keep their options open for future careers.

All students also study Physical Education, RSHE and Ethical Studies.

In addition, students in year 9 are also able to choose 2-3 additional GCSE subjects (depending upon their pathway in Science), which they have a particular interest in. Information about KS4 GCSE courses can be found for each subject under the subject area of the website.

The curriculum at Post 16 is designed to prepare students for both university and the world of work. Each post-16 student has their own specific goal and ambition, and we ensure that each student has a personalised curriculum that meets their individual requirements. Students choose from a diverse range of qualifications so that they are able to participate in challenging and enjoyable courses.
