At key stage 4, students are offered a curriculum of robust qualifications in which they achieve well. The curriculum is predominately GCSE and students are fully supported through the options process in selecting courses that are appropriate to their future aspirations.
A small number of non-GCSE qualifications are available to students and a small group of students currently undertake work-based off-site learning alongside their GCSEs. All students take GCSE English language, English literature, mathematics and at least two sciences.
