The aims of Key Stage 4 are for each pupil to continue their enjoyment of each subject but also to immerse themselves in its knowledge, understanding and skills. This is with the objective of mastering the content, and with a view to using these qualities to further their ambitions and guiding their pathway post 16.
Subjects studied in KS4 are a result of the options process in year 8. Your son will be regularly assessed, whilst focussing on key skills such as analysis, evaluation and critical thinking. In addition he will consolidate key knowledge and subject specific protocols. Homework is regularly set and revision skills are embedded within each subject area.
