Key Stage 4
In Year 10 and 11, your child will study a number of compulsory IGCSE subjects including English Language, English Literature, Mathematics, Science, Core Physical Education (PE) and Growing Minds.
Students who are not native English speakers are likely to study IGCSE English as a Second Language rather than the two separate English options.
All students will study all three sciences (Physics, Chemistry and Biology) and they will study towards a Dual Award worth two IGCSEs. Some students will study all three as a Triple Award at the discretion of the Head of Science.
Furthermore, your child will choose an additional language to study from a range of options offered here at Regents, including Thai (First Language), Korean (First Language), Mandarin (First Language), Russian (First Language), Mandarin, Spanish or French.
Then will then select an additional four subjects from a total of sixteen: Psychology, ICT, Computer Science, Geography, Business Studies, Economics, Fine Art, History, DT Graphic Products, Photography, Graphic Communication, Music, Physical Education, Drama, Travel and Tourism, Three Dimensional Design.
The courses cater for different ability levels, with students having the option to choose between core and extended papers in many subjects. The extended curriculum is more challenging and designed for students who are expected to achieve higher grades.
At the end of the two-year course, your child will receive a grade for each subject they have sat, based on their results in coursework and examination.
