Key Stage 4 Curriculum
In KS4 students will study GCSE or equivalent courses including the compulsory core subjects of English (language and literature), Maths and Science (which includes Physics, Chemistry and Biology). Students will also study Physical Education. We fully support the entitlement that all students have to study the EBacc and expect a high level of take up by students.
All students are guided to study at least one EBacc subject. The EBacc (English Baccalaureate) is a combination of GCSE subjects, English Language & Literature, Maths, Science, History or Geography and a Language.
Where students are unable to meet the requirements of GCSE there will be an offer of personalised entry level learning in EBacc subjects. Students are able to choose up to four subjects. Our vocational academy has the facility to offer ‘double’ options. For students requiring additional Maths and/ or English support we have alternative models to support their individual requirements.
