In Years 9, 10 and 11 students follow six core subjects and study up to four others from a wide variety of subjects that are accredited through GCSE and Technical Awards.
Religious Education, English Language and English Literature, Mathematics and combined Sciences are core subjects (in addition to non-examination PE). Students are asked to express a preference to study four additional subjects. Students are required to express a preference to study at least one of: French; Spanish; Geography or History.
By constantly seeking ways to raise achievement, we have developed a curriculum where the needs of every student are addressed. To support the identification of subjects, heads of subjects have created videos (see below) outlining the aims, structure and details of assessments relating to the courses .
We always guide students to express preferences to continue to study a broad and balanced curriculum:
• a modern foreign language i.e. French or Spanish
• a humanity i.e. geography or history
• an art/creative/performance subject
• a technical/science subject
