Key Stage 4

This allows students in years 9 to 11 to study for their GCSE and equivalent qualifications for three years (rather than the usual two).  All students study the core subjects of English, maths, science and RE.  They can then choose three options from the following – art, business studies, computing, design and technology, drama, food studies, geography, history, ICT, music, the separate sciences, Spanish and sociology.

More information can be found in our Key Stage Four options booklet or by visiting individual subject pages using the menu.  Printed versions of the booklet are distributed along with option forms at the year 8 parents' evening early in the new year.

Study options are chosen by parents and pupils after PSHE work-related sessions and our annual industry day initiative.
