Every student has access to a broad and balanced curriculum that is flexible enough to meet the needs of the individual. For some students there is a focus on the English Baccalaureate qualifications (Maths, English, two Sciences, a Modern Foreign Language and either Geography or History). For others a more vocational programme of study may best support achievement and progression to further education.

The curriculum at Key Stage 4 consists of the core curriculum which is studied by all students and additional options chosen by students in consultation with parents and teachers. In most cases students choose 3 options although some may be selected for the Future Pathways programme as an alternative.
