Year 8 students follow a programme during the Spring Term which supports them in making choices about their GCSE curriculum. The programme includes:

  • Individual discussions with parents/carers, student and a member of staff at a calendared avent
  • An Information evening with subject ‘stalls’
  • Extended Learning Day activities linking to future ambitions and aspirations

All students follow the core offer which leads to 6 GCSEs:

  • English Language
  • English Literature
  • Maths
  • Combined Science (2 GCSEs which cover Biology, Chemistry and Physics)
  • Religious Studies

Students will then ‘opt’ for a further four courses. These courses should ensure that students continue with a broad curriculum that prepares them for a range of futures, both as people and as workers. The courses currently on offer to students are shown in the curriculum outlines on Year Group pages, and on the Subjects and Boards page. The specific courses may be different in any given year.
