The school offers a wide range of subjects to GCSE level or similar. Full details are sent to parents with children in Year 9 before options are chosen. For any interested parents further information is available from school and in addition the results given at the end of this booklet show the range of recent courses successfully completed in external examinations.
We are proud of the grades achieved in recent years in GCSEs. Success at the highest possible level for each pupil in external examinations is an important target.
For most pupils the school offers a maximum of 10 GCSE subjects per pupil. The core subjects in the upper school as followed by all pupils ensure a broad balanced education whilst individual pupils can pursue their own particular strengths and interests through the 'options choices'.
Pupils of all abilities who have shown the necessary commitment in their upper school courses are encouraged to enter external examinations. If pupils fail to complete their coursework requirements by given deadlines they are not entitled to examination entry.
