Key Stage 4

Years 10 and 11

Towards the end of Year 9, pupils have an important element of choice of courses for Years 10 and 11. However, English, Mathematics, Welsh, Science, Physical Education, Religious Education and the Welsh Baccalaureate will be compulsory for all pupils.

The courses in Years 10 and 11 generally lead to Public Examination over the 2 yrs. A wide range of subjects is available at GCSE level. A Course leading to the W.J.E.C. Entry Level in which the main form of assessment is through course work rather than formal examinations, is also available to pupils in Years 10 and 11. It is the policy of the School to enter as many pupils as possible for external examinations leading to nationally recognised qualifications.
