Year 9 Curriculum

Return to Curriculum OverviewWhen students enter Year 9 they begin their GCSE studies, allowing three years for Key Stage 4 education compared with the usual two. This extra time is utilised to deepen student understanding of the knowledge and concepts of each subject they study, as well as giving each student adequate time to prepare appropriately for their final GCSE examinations. Students are entered for examinations at the end of Year 11.

Our 2017 keystage 4 pathway can be seen in the table below:
