Individual learning towards an independent life

Secondary Curriculum KS4

Based on the capacity and subject specialisms within our staff the subjects listed below will be available for students to study. Most subjects will be offered as a GCSE as well as a suitable alternative qualification being available. It is expected that all students will study the core subjects and choose a maximum of three foundation subjects.
