Now is the time to consider your options for the future.
Year 10 and 11 are an important time in a student’s school life, and as you get closer to picking your options you may be considering alternatives to the traditional GCSE route. Now could be the time you focus your studies on the things you enjoy and do well.
We offer an innovative and exciting way of studying in Key Stage 4. Lessons are a mixture of theory and practical, with an emphasis on workshops, scientific investigations, and the use of technology to solve problems and design solutions.
The curriculum is narrower, with students in Key Stage 4 studying core GCSEs, alongside BTEC Level 2 Engineering and short course Religious Studies GCSE. PE is taken once per week in our brand-new facilities.
Our curriculum facilitates the development of personal skills as well as academic and technical knowledge, with projects and trips designed to ensure our students are highly employable. Professional qualifications are on offer within our CPD, and enrichment programmes and Physical Education is an essential element of the weekly timetable.
Our Key Stage 4 offer facilitates the same pathway into Key Stage 5 and degree courses as a traditional school plus opportunities for exposure to employers and apprenticeship providers.
