4

In Years 10 and 11 students have a large element of choice which allows them to

personalise their Key Stage 4 curriculum. There are, however, a number of subjects

which are compulsory for every student – these are the

core subjects

and they

make up approximately 60% of the timetable for each student. For students

following Pathway 3, the remainder of each student’s timetable is composed of the

three option subjects

that they will choose to study.

The Key Stage 4 curriculum is outlined below. The School follows a two week

timetable cycle of 50 one hour lessons.

Students will study courses that will lead to GCSEs in:

English Language

English Literature

Mathematics

Modern Foreign Languages

Combined Science

And three other GCSEs

*Please note that some students will be guided towards Triple Science. This will

replace Combined Science and one Option.

Most students should therefore end up with nine GCSEs, however alternative

provision may be provided for specific students.
