Key Stage 4 Curriculum

In Key Stage 4, all students continue to study English and maths daily and are entered for suitable qualifications in these core subjects; for the vast majority of our students this is the GCSE, however for some students this may be a Functional Skills or Entry Level Certificate.

In addition to English and maths, there is a broad range of qualifications on offer. Most of our students in Years 10 and 11 will study for the History GCSE and will continue with Science to GCSE, BTEC or Entry Level.

All students continue to have P.E. lessons and many will be entered for the BTEC Award in Sport and Active Leisure.

Students can also choose from a range of arts, technology and vocational qualifications. We offer:

Animal Care / Land Based Studies (BTEC)

Art and Design (GCSE)

Catering (Food Technology GCSE or Jamie’s Home Cooking Skills)

Construction (BTEC Award)

Mechanics (Engineering BTEC Award)

Music (Creative Media Production BTEC)

We’re excited to begin our partnership with Orchard Hill College Academy Trust, together working towards positive outcomes for our students
