We are committed to providing a broad and balanced education that values the essential knowledge and skills within National Curriculum subjects.
The Core GCSEs cover the English Baccalaureate. They are also ‘gateway’ qualifications, meaning that pupils will be able to study any subject post 16. These subjects include: English language, English literature, maths, science, history, Spanish, computing*, personal development*, religious education* and physical education*.
Our Creative and Performing Arts curriculum includes four hours of dedicated study a week in one of four disciplines: acting, dance, music performance and production or design for performance. There are additional activities such as rehearsals, workshops, events and performances they will take places out of school hours.
Provision for alternate GCSEs and other qualifications may be put in place if we deem that a pupil is better served this way. We also offer additional support for pupils in Maths and English.
