In Key Stage 4, all students (other than very rare instances) study the core subjects of English, Maths and Science as well as History or Geography, a language and PE. All also study Relationships and Sex Education. Students are then offered with equal access Computing, RE and Citizenship as well as many other options. 

Students commence GCSE subjects in year 10. Options offered in Key Stage 4 take account of the local context and provide the opportunity to study a wide range of academic, vocational, expressive, creative and technology subjects including Art, Design and Technology, Psychology, Business, Health and Social Care, Sport, Drama, Music, French, Spanish and Mandarin.
