Key Stage 4

The Key Stage 4 curriculum is designed to build on the learning experiences that children had in Key Stage 3 and allows some personalisation through the Options process.

In academic year 2016/17, following parental consultation, we made the decision to launch the Options process for Year 8 students. This means that our Key Stage 4 curriculum is delivered over three years. We think this model will increase the chances of long-term success for our students and the school.

There is a core curriculum of English Language, English Literature, Mathematics, Science and PE, which all students will study. Students are then able to select option subjects from a range of subjects.

We introduce curriculum pathways at Key Stage 4 to support and guide students, ensuring they have access to the right courses to ensure they can progress into their next stage of learning in employment, training or at a Post-16 educational provision.

Most students will continue to study a Modern Foreign Language and either Geography or History, allowing them to meet the demands of the English Baccalaureate.

To ensure sufficient stretch and challenge for our most able students a high number will follow a Triple Science programme.

The standard KS4 curriculum model is as follows:
