KS4 Courses

Male and female students using laptops

In Key Stage 4, students study a broadly based curriculum which enables them to continue and carry forward a wide range of subjects - this is their entitlement. In addition, thanks to a preference system, students are able to take extra courses which are appropriate to their own interests and experiences.

In summary, all students follow the curriculum below:

  • Science (usually 2 or 3 qualifications)
  • English Language & Literature
  • Mathematics
  • Physical Education
  • Personal, Social Citizenship and Health Education (PSCHE) with some elements of RE
  • Weekly assembly
  • Daily 20 minute Tutor time- including mentoring time, to assess progress and set targets on an individual basis - alongside some literacy work
  • Preference subjects *

* A separate form details the preference choices for you to discuss and consider over the next five weeks.

We are running two types of day release course with limited places offered to selected students:

  1. College Course (Level 1) - 3 subjects
  2. Work Experience - practical experience with no formal qualification

There are limited numbers of places on each of the above courses. We are trying to be open about the process and the more detailed individual guides provide further details about any individual course requirements. On top of just the course details, you must give thought to:

  1. Transport times
  2. Mixing with students from other schools
  3. Being taught at another school with specialist buildings
  4. Working with new staff
