There are many different types of courses available at Key Stage 4, some that students have not studied before. There are also many changes to the curriculum for our students at Key Stage 4. Some of these changes have been made in school to ensure that we offer a broad and balanced curriculum which allows clear pathways for all our students up to the age of eighteen and beyond.
There are several compulsory subjects that all students in Year 10 and 11 must study as part of the Key Stage 4 curriculum.
These subjects are:
English (Language and Literature)
Faith & Philosophy
The other subjects that students select are dependent on what they may wish to study in the future and what their career pathways may be. Often students do not have any ideas at this stage which is why we encourage a broad curriculum to keep post-16 pathways open. Students are guided to make choices with advice from experts in school who know them well, such as their form tutors, their House Progress Leaders and subject teachers, together with senior teachers with responsibility for careers and pathways.
