Year 9 Curriculum Choices - Students
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 program of study.
Exploring the World: Geography, History, Sociology
Creative Expression: Art, Drama, Film Studies, Food and Nutrition, Graphics, Music, Physical Education, Resistant Materials, Textiles
Broadening My Perspectives: French, Business and Enterprise (BTEC), Digital IT (BTEC), Health and Social Care (BTEC) OR any of the other options if it hasn’t 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.
Students will be required to make their selections by February half-term. Below is a copy of the options booklet for 2020-21, and videos that give a brief overview of the scope and content of each option choice.
