Curriculum

Key Stage 4

Year 9, 10 an 11

Students in years 9-11 are currently taught in one of four ability pathways (W, X, Y and Z). This allows all of the core subjects to be taught in ability groups. English and Maths teach all of the students in a year group at the same time, so these subjects can finely set students into one of nine groups.
