Our core aims for the Key Stage 4 Curriculum are that it:
At Bacon’s, our GCSE curriculum requires that ALL students study
Core PE and PSHE will also be delivered to all students but these do not count as GCSEs.
Students on Pathway 1* and 1 are also expected to study:
Depending on the Pathway that a student is allocated to, students may choose to study options from the following subjects:
BTEC IT/ Creative iMedia
There is also provision for students to access extra support in literacy or numeracy, and a suite of potential Functional Skills qualifications, if these are deemed appropriate.
Core+ lessons are intervention lessons in English, Maths and Science that are provided to support students who experience difficulties in at least one of their optional subject choices.
Students can also request to be entered for qualifications in their ‘home’ languages.
More detail regarding each qualification can be found in the Subject Information Sheets for GCSE and A-Level, and in our Prospectus.
