In Key Stage 4, our curriculum is built around a core programme of learning with a focus on STEM subjects. Students will build a solid foundation of knowledge and skills leading to GCSE qualifications and, where appropriate, the English Baccalaureate.
The curriculum will be designed to ensure that the majority of students take at least 8 qualifications, with exception made for those students for whom a smaller number is more appropriate.
The core education programme will be delivered through themes, linked to the technical specialisms and to employer set challenge projects. ICT will be integrated through all learning within the Academy.
The core curriculum is:-
- GCSE Mathematics
- GCSE English
- GCSE Core and Additional Science (triple GCSE available)
- GCSE Computer Science
- PE, PSHE and RE are all non-examined
Our specialist engineering qualifications are delivered through employer-led projects to ensure that students experience a real-world challenge, develop their engineering knowledge and practice their employability skills.
In addition, students are able to choose either 2 or 3 choices such as:-
- Triple Science (converting Double Science to the 3 separate Sciences)
- A Humanities Subject
- Art and Design
- Business Studies
- Product Design
- Modern Foreign Languages
