Years 10-11

Years 10 and 11 Curriculum

We believe that our curriculum is flexible enough to meet the individual needs of all our students in Years 10 and 11. Some subjects (the core) are compulsory, but we also offer the opportunity for students to make choices about subjects to study, supporting their core curriculum. We cover all the entitlement areas required by the National Curriculum.

The core subjects which all students study include English, mathematics, science, physical education, religious studies and PSHE. The amount of time devoted to each subject is as follows:

SubjectTimetable allocation
English7 hours per fortnight
Mathematics7 hours per fortnight
Science8 hours per fortnight
Physical Education4 hours per fortnight
Religious Studies2 hours per fortnight

While ICT is no longer taught as a discrete subject, it is used as a tool to support learning across the whole curriculum.

In addition, students are able to choose from a wide range of option choices. These include both traditional GCSEs as well as a range of other courses which are equivalent to GCSEs. Students have four slots on their timetable which are filled with option subjects (5 hours per slot).
