Key stage 4 is split into core subjects and option subjects. 

All students have to study the core subjects and during year 9 students go through the options process where students choose which options they would like to study during Key Stage 4 (allocations are dependent on numbers, staffing and blocking of subjects).

Most students in Year 10 start to follow a range of GCSE or Technical (GCSE equivalent) courses.
All courses will be fully assessed at the end of Year 11.
