Options Booklet

Click HERE to download the Key Stage 4 Options Booklet.

Our Key Stage 4 Curriculum is designed to ensure each student is academically challenged and engaged in their learning. It is rigorous in nature, covering the EBACC, but it also offers the opportunity to study creative or vocational courses.

We feel this balance is something that underpins everything we are trying to achieve. We are committed to providing a curriculum that will:

  • Meet individual needs and aspirations
  • Be broad, challenging and motivating
  • Offer participation in learning to 19 years of age
  • Prepare students for a positive role in the future
