Preparing for KS4 –Year 9
Preparation is key to success
The process by which students make their selections about what courses they wish to study at Key Stage 4 is roughly outlined below. Full details of this programme bespoke to each new Year 9 cohort will be given in January of the academic year.
Each year we review our curriculum and design it around the needs of the students in that year group. It is therefore not possible to say exactly which subjects will run until the 'preferences stage' has been completed. However, for parents and students wishing to understand more, please look at the preparation booklet available to download below.
