Key Stage 3

Students work on a rotational basis at Key Stage 3 (Year 7 and 8) with Design Technology, Photography and ICT.

This gives the students 8 weeks in each subject.

At the end of Year 8, students can choose to carry on with Food Technology as a GCSE option.

Key Stage 4

Key Stage 4 runs through Years 9, 10 and 11.
GCSE students study from the AQA GCSE 8585 Specification.
