Year 9 Curriculum Choices - Students
Latest students will be required to make their selections by Monday, 26th February 2024. At KS4, all students will study the core subjects of English (Literature/Language), Maths and Science. Students will also be required to study GCSE RE to broaden their understanding of how philosophy, religion and ethics form the basis of our culture, and support the development of valuable skills that will be useful in multiple subject areas.
Students will then have three subject choices available, which have been grouped into the following curriculum areas to help support a broad and balanced programme of study.
Exploring the World: Geography, History, French and Spanish. Triple Science - This pathway is worth three separate GCSE grades (Biology, Chemistry and Physics).
Creative Expression: Art, Drama, Food and Nutrition, Graphics, Music, Physical Education, Resistant Materials, and Textiles
Broadening My Perspectives: Computer Science, Sociology, French, Spanish Business and Enterprise (BTEC), Health and Social Care (BTEC) OR any of the other options if it has not already been selected.
NB. Please note that students cannot study a combination of Graphics, Textiles or Resistant Materials, as these specialisms all fall under the same Design Technology GCSE.
