Key Stage 4: Ages 14-16 years old

Key Stage 4 refers to the curriculum covered by students in Years 10 - 11. It is a two year programme that prepares students for I/GCSE (International/General Certificate of Secondary Education) examinations which are completed at the end of Year 11.

IGCSE/GCSE are official examination qualifications. The examinations are  set, marked and graded externally in the United Kingdom. The examination boards for our school are; Cambridge International Examinations (CIE) and AQA. The IGCSE grades are particularly important when students apply to university before International Diploma grades are known in year13. The two year course is therefore very important for the future of our students.

Students in Key Stage 4 follow examination syllabi in:

 English Language,

 English Literature,


 Co-ordinated Sciences (double award)

Students also choose four additional subjects from a number of options which include French, German, Spanish, Art, Information Technology, History, Geography, Business Studies, Physical Education and Music. Many students also complete GCSE examinations in Polish or their mother tongue.

GCSE examinations are excellent preparation for the final two years of schooling and are required by many British universities as part of their application process.

GCSE examinations pave the way for the IBDP (International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme).

Classes vary in size from 5 to 22 depending on the choices made by students for a particular subject in an option block (see link below)

Highest Quality Learning remains a primary focus of every subject and we are very proud of the examination results achieved by our students every year.
