Our aim is to equip every student by the age of 16 for continuing education and a balanced, healthy adult life. We will offer a range of KS4 qualifications to help every student gain self-worth and a sense of achievement, including GCSE and GCSE short courses, Entry Level Certificates (ELC) and BTEC courses. We will support every student to move on to appropriate post-16 education.
BTECs give students the skills they need to either move on to higher education or go straight into employment. For instance, a BTEC National Certificate in Business would cover all aspects of business including marketing, law, human resources and accounting.
We will follow the National Curriculum and are mindful of the review that is currently taking place. Our Key Stage 4 Curriculum is provisional at this stage, because options and courses are currently changing and developing both nationally and locally.
