Pupils in Years 11 and 12 engage in the following programme, which is designed not only to meet statutory demands, but also to afford maximum breadth and flexibility of subject choice.
The breadth and balance of time given to each Area of Study and their subjects is determined by means of a questionnaire sent to all parents of Year 10 pupils during the second term. This is followed, early in the third term, by choices made from amongst those subjects which prove most popular as a result of the earlier questionnaire.
Links with a College of Further Education provides an additional choice of subjects for Year 11 and 12 pupils.
Non-Examination Subjects (reduced time allocation)
Learning for Life and Work which includes Employability, Local and Global Citizenship and Personal Development.
