KS4 Curriculum

Our Key Stage 4 curriculum provides our students with an excellent foundation for further study in the Sixth Form and the option to continue their studies at a top university. We consistently aim to ensure students attain the highest standards of achievement by providing learning and teaching of the highest possible standard.

As a school we have created an ethos in which our students are equipped with the tools to question the world around them, are able to tackle difficult challenges in a positive and diligent way. Above all, we aim to nurture students who can operate independently in the world: who can develop their own ideas, who have initiative and drive, and who have a "can-do" mind-set. We want our students to be well rounded and high achieving.

Lessons are designed to ensure excellence, progression and creative thinking. We are proud of our teachers’ high expectations and relentless commitment to developing new approaches to engaging and inspiring all our learners.  Our teachers are passionate about seeing our young learners grasp new concepts, learn new skills and excel in demonstrating their knowledge and understanding.

Our students have access to a broad and balanced curriculum which stimulates and ensures a love of learning. Certain subjects remain compulsory and others remain within the choice of the students. Please see the Year 9 Options Booklet for more information.
