At KS4 students continue to study the core subjects (English, Maths and Science), and to recognise their importance for the students’ life chances the hours per week are increased to 5 per subject, over 50% of their curriculum time. To ensure most students cover the English Baccalaureate set of subjects, students take a Humanity (History or Geography) and a modern foreign language (French or Spanish). The students also choose two further option subjects to study to GCSE. You can read about our Key Stage 4 option subjects in our prospectus below.
To ensure students have a rounded curriculum to prepare them for life beyond school students also study the non-examined subject, Relating. This covers philosophy and ethics, community and aspects of health and wellbeing.
Night club is available in the library every day after school until 6:00pm (except Fridays). A member of staff is always on duty and light refreshments are provided.
