Key Stage 4

Key stage 4 will commence in year 9. The students will have to make their option choices in year 8. If appropriate our students follow the subjects for the English Baccalaureate. We ensure that we stretch the more able students, whilst targeting support for the students that have additional needs to ensure they all leave the Academy with the most appropriate qualifications to progress to further education.

Key Stage 4 curriculum

The three year Key Stage 4 will give students a chance to deeply embed the learning, and there will be opportunity for students to take a range of pathways which will support and extend learning which may lead to some students taking GCSEs earlier and then follow an AS or extended project programme.

Our students will be expected to take the following subjects as part of the English Baccalaureate:

  • English
  • Mathematics
  • Triple or Double Science
  • History or Geography (option 1)
