Year 9 Preferences
The Key Stage 4 curriculum is taught in Years 10 & 11. At this stage, students will have some choice in which subjects they study and are guided in the choices they make. All students follow a core curriculum and then are guided onto three pathways.

Omega Pathway – The academic pathway
Students study for GCSEs in the triple sciences, either Geography or History, French and have a choice of one other subject.
