Exams & Qualifications
All pupils follow National curriculum courses for pupils aged 11 to 16. Pupils take courses and qualifications that will give them the best chance of success. The majority of our pupils are entered for the General certificate of Secondary Education GCSE. However, we also offer a range of alternative qualifications including BTEC’s, National Awards and National Certificates. Most pupils at KS4 follow a Curriculum that will lead to the English Baccalaureate comprising GCSE grade ‘C’ or above in English, Maths, double Science, a Modern Foreign Language and either History or Geography.
We run a number of vocational courses with appropriate qualifications in subjects such as Hairdressing and Engineering. Travel & Tourism, Media Studies, Art, Drama and Music all offer a BTEC qualification, whilst ICT will offer an OCR National Certificate. We also offer a GCSE in Applied Business Studies, and Applied Health and Social Care, and we deliver level 1 courses in Hairdressing and Public Services.
We provide Entry Level Certificates in Maths, English and ASDAN, and continually review our provision to ensure we meet the needs of all pupils. We have a well supported Foundation Learning group at KS4.
