2.02 Key Stage 4 (Years 10 to 11)
We aim to give every student an individual and well-balanced course during these two vital years. Such a course should leave open as many doors as possible as far as a future career is concerned.
All students study to GCSE Level in English Language, English Literature and Mathematics and the majority will study either French or Spanish. Students will also follow a full GCSE Course in Religious Studies. As appropriate all students study either separate single GCSEs in Physics, Chemistry and Biology, or Core and Additional Science. Those students studying the three separate Sciences will also study for an additional GCSE qualification in Statistics.
Four further GCSE subjects are chosen by students from the following list. Those students who are taking three separate Sciences at GCSE will only select three further subjects:
Animal Care BTEC
Business Studies GCSE
Child Development GCSE
Computer Science GCSE
Construction BTEC (double option)
Drama and Theatre Arts GCSE
Food Preparation and Nutrition GCSE
Graphic Products GCSE
Media Studies GCSE
Physical Education GCSE
Resistant Materials GCSE
There are various extension activities in class as well as courses for Gifted and Talented students.
Some students will be able to work towards a Bronze or Silver award from the Duke of Edinburgh's Award Scheme. This involves them in community work and additional work experience. Some students follow the ASDAN scheme leading to bronze or silver awards. In addition students work towards and achieve Bronze, Silver and Gold Arts Awards.
