All students study the core subjects throughout Years 10 and 11.
These subjects are:
- GCSE English Language

- GCSE Mathematics
- GCSE Combined Science*
- GCSE Religious Studies
- BTEC Creative Media (IT)**
- Core PE (not examined)

*Students who choose triple science as one of their options will take a GCSE in all 3 of the sciences instead of the Combined Science GCSE.
**Students who choose the STEM package will study GCSE Computer Science instead of BTEC Creative Media.
In addition to the core curriculum above, students can choose 3 further options for Key Stage 4. We offer a broad range of courses, ranging from traditional GCSE subjects to vocational qualifications. As one of their options, all students must choose a humanities subject (History or Geography).
Options available at Key Stage 4 are:
Design & Technology
Enterprise & Marketing
Food Preparation & Nutrition
Health and Social Care
Triple Science (Biology, Chemistry and Physics)
We provide lots of guidance for students, so that we offer as broad and balanced and ambitious a curriculum as possible. Please see the options booklet below for further details about EBacc, our STEM package and all of our courses.
