Year 10 students choose four option subjects in line with the EBacc pathway, which includes a language and a humanity.
These are taken alongside the core subjects – English Language, English Literature, Maths, and Double or Triple Science.
The majority of students will study the Combined Science GCSE course, with the more-able having the choice to take Physics, Chemistry and Biology as separate GCSEs.
A small group of students choose three subjects alongside the core subjects, and have additional time allocated to support their progress in literacy, numeracy and GCSE exam preparation.
All pupils continue to study RE, PE and PSHCE.
Pupils are assigned to an appropriate pathway based on prior attainment and progress. This is to support them in choosing appropriate subjects.
