KEY STAGE 4 CURRICULUM

At KS4 students will study a number of ‘core subjects’ and will also be able to choose some options.

CORE SUBJECTS

  • English
  • Maths
  • Science  – with different options depending upon the ability of the student.
  • PE
  • ICT, for those not taking separate sciences.
  • Citizenship – including Careers and Personal, Health and Social Education

OPTION SUBJECTS

Despite being a small school we offer a wide range of options to suit the needs, interests and abilities of our students. These include:

Business Studies

Art & Design

Health & Social Care

History

Performance

Materials Technology

French

Design Technology

Geography

Food Technology

Physical Education

Religious Studies    

Year 9 students choose their options during the spring term. Students and parents will get an opportunity to consider these options in great detail through the options booklet and by attending our ‘Options Evening’. There will also be an opportunity for each student to discuss their choices with a senior member of staff. Throughout this process considerable thought is given to ensuring each individual student has access to the right courses during KS4.
