Key Stage 4

Towards the end of Year 9 students make choices about which subjects they will study for GCSE.

In general there are two pathways and students will be guided towards which one is most suitable for them.

 

English-Baccalaureate Pathway

Core Pathway

All English Baccalaureate students will study Maths, English Language, English Literature, R.E. and double or triple science as well as core Games sessions.  To gain the English Baccalaureate qualification you must choose a language and History or Geography. All Core Support Pathway students will study Maths, English Language, English Literature, R.E, Double Science and Core PE. To further support your education you will also study – ASDAN and the Duke of Edinburgh Award. (Bronze Award). You also have the choice of 1 subject option.

Duke of Edinburgh (Bronze)

ASDAN

The Duke of Edinburgh Award requires extra time for completion so has the equivalent of 2 options worth of time. The main emphasis of the course is to provide students with team working and problem solving skills, give clear advice on how to be a responsible citizen and also equip students with the right skills to be resilient and strong leaders in a very quickly changing world.

HE colleges and institutions like to see DofE on students CV’s as it shows a commitment to learning.

ASDAN’s courses are designed to develop learners’ personal and employability skills through an engaging and challenging curriculum of activities, leading to a certificate of accreditation or achievement. They encompass preparation for life and work, enrichment, PSHE and Citizenship and curriculum subjects – such as English, Mathematics and Science. The ASDAN approach can help meet the needs of individual learners across the ability range, from those working below Entry level to those preparing for university.
