Key Stage 4 Curriculum
 
In Years 9 - 11, students continue to study English, Mathematics and Science as well as Religious Studies and PE. Students also opt to study 3 additional subjects, i to ensure that we offer a genuinely inclusive curriculum to suit the learning needs of all our students.   For those students who want to take additional subjects at GCSE, Third Session classes run after the normal school day in some subjects.
