Key Stage 4

Key Stage 4 is delivered through an innovative three-year programme. Students take a series of GCSEs and BTEC/Level 2 qualifications through a staged approach, which has been designed to reduce the pressures and stresses that can be experienced through the more traditional two year Key Stage 4.

Every student will complete some Level 2 qualifications (including GCSEs and/or BTECs) by the end of Year 10.

Students then have a choice of subjects to study in Year 11.  GCSEs and other qualifications such as BTECs that are completed in Year 11 are allocated increased lesson time, and study begins immediately after the Year 10 examinations in June.
