Students' choices are considered in the light of their motivation, past performance, attendance and aptitude. Group numbers and resources may also affect choices. It is school policy to enter students for public examinations when they are ready for them. Consequently some students may take public examinations in some subjects before the end of Year 11.
In addition to examination subjects, all students have classes in Physical Education and Religious Education. Personal, Social, Health and Careers Education are delivered across the curriculum and supplemented through specific themed sessions.
The academic progress of pupils is monitored by the KS4 progress manager and their form tutor.
All pupils have career interviews and receive information about our Sixth Form and about Further and Higher Education. In Year 11 all students are interviewed about their future plans.
For more information, please contact the progress manager for your child's year. This information can be found under Information / Key Contacts.
