KS4 Curriulum Subjects

Most students in Year 10 follow GCSE courses in a range of subjects.

All students in this year now follow linear GCSE courses, most of which have an element of 'controlled assessment' (a time-limited project-based piece of work requiring several hours to complete). Some students will complete a Science qualification by the end of Year 10. 
All other courses will be fully assessed at the end of Year 11.
