Key Stage 4 Overview
Years 9, 10 and 11
Courses lead to recognised public examinations. All students follow a ‘core curriculum’. Science comprises Core and Additional science. The most able science students follow three separate sciences, biology, chemistry and physics.
Most students also choose 4 option subjects, one of which must be French, Geography or History. Those students for whom this is not appropriate follow a reduced curriculum.
