Key Date: Options Evening 2021
We feel it is vitally important that as a school, we provide a ‘broad and balanced’ curriculum. We want to open as many doors as possible for students which is why we construct our curriculum so that all students have the opportunity to study all components of the English Baccalaureate (English, Mathematics, Science, a Modern Foreign Language and a Humanities subject – either History or Geography), alongside other option subjects that are intended to nurture their love of learning.
Please take careful note of the "Planning your Future" page below as it gives some useful advice on how option choices in year 9 can impact upon A’ level / BTEC, and ultimately degree level, choices in the future.
No student is able to leave education or training at the age of 16 anymore, but A Levels don’t suit everyone. Students will soon have two distinct choices at age 16: an academic route or a technical route. The academic route is well known: A-Levels designed to prepare students for university courses in the main. The new alternative is the technical T-Levels.
