Middle Years

MYYears 9 to Year 11:
The middle years - GCSE

A three year GCSE programme that allows
for stretch and challenge during the delivery of the
more difficult reformed GCSE programmes of study.


Enrichment opportunities in Year 9:

Community Service: students will support the outreach work in the local primary schools establishing strong inter school partnerships and developing their own skill set. Leadership Opportunities: empower the students to lead and develop their creativity. This will make more efficient use of school resources and better equip teachers and students
in obtaining the new grade 8 and 9.

In Year 11 students will undertake a week long work experience programme with a registered employer. All students study for nine core GCSEs in English Language and Literature, a Modern Foreign Language (presently French or German), Mathematics, Science (taught as Physics, Chemistry and Biology), a Humanities subject (History or Geography), and Religious Education. In addition, students choose two additional GCSE options from:

  • Art, Business, Computing, Drama, French, Geography, German, History, Music.
  • Two additional subjects, Physical Education and PSHE, are taught as non-exam courses.
