Key stage 4
We are passionate about ensuring that all students achieve an all-round education that ensures they are well prepared for the next stage of their education or training. Teaching hours are generous with each session lasting 55 minutes.
In year 9 there are 5 sessions per week for English and Mathematics, 4 for Science, 3 for humanities and languages, and the other options have 2 sessions per week.
In year 10 there are also 5 sessions per week for English and Mathematics and Science, 3 for humanities and languages, and the other options have 3 sessions per week.
To ensure students have a rounded curriculum to prepare them for life beyond school students also study the non-examined subject, Relating for 1 hour per week. This covers philosophy and ethics, community and aspects of health and wellbeing and enables active citizenship with FirstGive.
