Individual Academic Excellence – Years 9-11
In addition to a continuing focus on outstanding progress in English, Mathematics and Science, from the start of Year 9, we enable our pupils to choose 6 ‘optional’ subjects to continue with. This gives our pupils several advantages:
1.Most importantly, they are able to select the subjects where their passions and talents are best suited, thereby making their school days even more enjoyable as they prepare for GCSEs.
2.By removing some subjects, more time can be allocated to chosen subjects, enabling greater progress to be made.
3.This process of selection, also ensures that our average class sizes are reduced even further from Year 9, ensuring even more support and challenge from our fantastic teachers at a crucial time for our pupils.
At the start of Year 10, this choice of 6 subjects is further refined down to 4, which will complete their GCSE subject selection(s). This ensures that the vast majority of our pupils will sit ten GCSES:
-Plus 4 subjects of their choosing.
Throughout their time in Years 9-11, pupils continue to have weekly Sports/Games lessons (including time for fixtures) and Life Skills lessons.
