Key Stage 5

We pride ourselves in delivering a curriculum across all key stages that provides for all abilities, challenging the most able and developing skills and talents for all groups of students.

Through creative, inspirational teaching our students are able to home in on their strengths and develop skills in areas where they may be less confident. This enables all students to achieve their very best.

Students entering Year 7 follow a common curriculum in all ability groups for the majority of subjects. As well as Physical Education, Personal and Social Education they study:



Food, Nutrition and Textiles









Two languages in Year 7 and one in Year 8

Philosophy and Religious studies

  • At the end of Year 7 our students choose their Key Stage 4 language.
  • At the end of Year 8 our students choose their options which they study at Key Stage 4.

The majority of students study the English Baccalaureate at Key Stage 4. To achieve the English Baccalaureate, students must achieve a grade C or above in English, mathematics, science and a chosen humanities and modern foreign language option.

After Key Stage 4 our students move on to our very highly successful Sixth Form where they will study four subjects at AS Level in Year 12 and three subjects in Year 13, after which the majority of the students move on to university.

‘The curriculum meets the students’ needs extremely well by providing a very wide
range of highly positive experiences and rich opportunities for high quality learning.’
