The KS4 Curriculum

KS4 begins in Year 9 which acts as a foundation year for GCSE and we focus on developing students’ practical skills for life and work as well as thinking and communication skills. Many students will begin GCSE and OCR courses and take public examinations at the end of Year 9.

We offer a wide range of courses reflecting individual needs and aspirations, which offer clear paths to further study in the Sixth Form, higher education and employment. Our collaboration with local schools and colleges means that, as part of the Atlantic Consortium, we are able to provide students with access to access to specialist expertise and facilities in a range of vocational NVQ and Diploma courses.
