Summary of Key Points for 2023 - 2025 Choices


  • You are strongly encouraged to continue with your Humanities and a Language choice
  • If you have not studied French or Spanish in Year 9, it is not suitable to start in Year 10. We will review the current progress of all language students and offer guidance on the best options going forward
  • RE GCSE is available as an option choice and examined in Year 11 along with all other subjects
  • Separate Science is available as an option and will not be studied as part of the core curriculum. All students will complete Combined Science (2 GCSEs). The additional content that allows students to sit separate GCSEs in Biology, Chemistry and Physics will be covered in the option class. This course will be studied at higher level only and will provide our high attaining science students with the opportunity to develop their scientific understanding

Religious Studies

We believe in the importance of the study of Religious Education for all students’ understanding of the world’s philosophy, beliefs, and cultures.  In order to support all students, there will be a core component of Religious Education comprising one lesson per fortnight and complementing the Life Skills and Citizenship (LSC) curriculum.
