Year 9 Curriculum

In year 9 students are introduced to GCSE in all subjects although final options are not taken until the end of year 9.  This is a very important transition as it will introduce you to the rigor and requirements of GCSE study.  You will also be assessed against GCSE assessment objectives in all subjects.

They will also continue to benefit from a range of curriculum days that will help inform your career planning and options choices.

Year 9 students are treated to series of subject presentations to help them with their decisions for their options.  We expect students to continue with the core subjects, to take one language and at least one humanity subject.  Because we believe in providing a breadth of opportunity for our students we include Geography, History, RS and Classical Civilization as humanities GCSEs.  This will leave a student with two free options choices.

More information can be found about the options process here (link to the options presentation for parents)
