Key Stage Four

We operate a three year Key Stage 4 (Years 9, 10 and 11) – students choosing options from a range of subjects prior to Easter in Year 8.

Students have traditionally chosen four options to study alongside the follwoing:

  • English Language
  • English Literature
  • Maths
  • Science

These are done so alongside other aspects such as:

  • Citizenship
  • Computing
  • Physical Education
  • Religious Education

From September 2016, to increase curriculum time available to subjects chosen as options, Year 8 will choose three subjects. In addition, Science has been removed from the options available, with the decision to study the three separate sciences (Biology, Chemistry and Physics) being made during Year 10.

By providing a high-quality provision of GCSE options, we want to ensure that every student has the same opportunity for an outstanding start to their adult lives.
