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
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:
Modern Foreign Languages
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.
