GCSE Curriculum for Year 10 and 11
When our students move from Key Stage 3 (ie. years 7, 8 and 9) into Key Stage 4 (ie. years 10 and 11 – the GCSE programme), they will be study a narrower range of subjects. Students are given support and guidance throughout the Pathway process (ie. choice of GCSE subjects) to ensure that the subjects and courses selected suit their ability, ambitions and specific needs.
We have designed our four Pathways to ensure that our students are able to study a range of subjects in which they are interested. We firmly believe that each Pathway leads to success; it’s up to the student herself, with advice and guidance from school, to select which subject grouping she wishes to study further.
All GCSE Curriculum Pathways ensure that our students receive the same number of high quality teaching hours. An overview of the breakdown of subjects and hours taught on each per week is provided in the graphic below.
