Key Stage 4

We aim for all pupils to achieve the EBACC. Therefore almost all pupils in Year 10 and Year 11 continue to study French and at least one of History or Geography. For the small few who have not reached the academic standards necessary to be successful in these subjects, alternative arrangements are made in this time to support them to make more rapid and sustained progress as readers, writers or mathematicians.

The majority of pupils choose two options from…

Spanish Art
Business Geography
History Music
