Key Stage 4

In Years 10 and 11 all students follow a common core which consists of:

  • GCSE English Language
  • GCSE English Literature
  • GCSE Maths
  • GCSE Science (Combined)
  • GCSE History or GCSE Geography
  • GCSE Spanish*
  • Core Physical Education
  • Core PSHE**

*The vast majority of students study Spanish. Occasionally, some students may perform better across the curriculum with a slightly different programme of study - in these few cases, students will be offered an alternative. 

**Core PSHE - this is delivered in bespoke collapsed sessions so that students benefit from specialist teach and guest speakers.
