Key Stage 4

Years Eleven and Twelve

Pupils in Years 11 and 12 follow a two year programme of study leading to a GCSE qualification. It is normal practice for students to select at least nine GCSE subjects.  Subject choices are carefully explained to pupils in careers classes and a parents’ evening is held before choices are confirmed.  Each pupil is required to select a combination of subjects which conforms to the national curriculum requirement for a broad, balanced and coherent programme of study.  However, there is sufficient flexibility in the system to allow for a degree of specialisation that takes account of each pupil’s aptitudes and interests.

The following subjects are available:


Art & Design

Digital Technology: Multimedia (formerly I.C.T)

Digital Technology: Programming (formerly Computer Science)
