Key Stage Four (Years 9 to 11)

Our primary focus at Key Stage 4 is to ensure pupils study a challenging and valuable GCSE curriculum which prepares them well for A Level study and attending the University of their choice. Pupils will be exposed to a more grown up, sophisticated study of each of their GCSE subjects.

All pupils can study towards the English Baccalaureate. This is made up of English, mathematics, history or geography, the sciences and a Modern Foreign Language. It is a measure that shows where pupils have secured a Grade 5 or above across the core of academic subjects at key stage 4. It is designed to enable parents and pupils to see how their school is performing.
