Welcome to KS4 which is made up of students in Years 9, 10 and 11.
KS4 is for students in years 9, 10 and 11, the GCSE years. Hard work, commitment and dedication in lessons and when completing homework is essential. Equally important is the development of our students into young adults ready to face the challenges of a continuously changing world.
We have good support systems in place for students, beginning with a dedicated team of Form Tutors. Students are well prepared for their GCSEs and future destinations with advice and guidance provided throughout the Academic Year.
Some GCSE courses have a controlled assessment element and focus is placed on all students having provision to achieve their best. After school revision sessions for both Years 10 and Year 11 are offered throughout the year so that students can prepare properly for both internal and external examinations.
