Key Stage 4

At KS4 students follow recommended curriculum pathways according to their academic ability, including the Ebaccalaureate route and a range of GCSEs or vocational qualifications. In addition to their option subjects, the vast majority of pupils will study English Language, English Literature, Mathematics, Science, Physical Education, and Personal, Social, Health Education (PSHE) delivered through dedicated form time and two drop down days. One drop down day is dedicated to careers and includes a careers fayre which gives students the opportunity to meet local FE and apprenticeship providers and employers. In Year 10 students also follow a compulsory programme called STEPS that covers social studies, theology, ethics, politics and sociology.
