Key Stage 4

KS4 aims to continue students’ education in core subjects whilst harnessing their desire for choice and specialisation based on personal interests and progression plans. It seeks to maintain high engagement levels and allow students to develop true depth in subject-specific knowledge.

Achieving necessary currency—in the form of good qualifications—is a central focus; attainment is a crucial factor in later progression.

At the same time, we aim to maintain a breadth in our wider curriculum offer that allows students to continue to experience intellectual disciplines outside of the GCSE subjects they have chosen.
