In Year 11, the 2 compulsory subjects are Maths and English. Students select both at either Level 1, Level 1 Alternative/Applied or Level 2 (and confirmed by Heads of Department).
In Year 12, the only compulsory subject is English. Students select this at either Level 2 or Level 2 Alternative/Applied (and confirmed by Heads of Department).
In Year 13, there are no compulsory subjects.
In addition to compulsory subjects, students choose ‘option’ subjects.
In Year 13, students choose 5 option subjects. We recommend students choose an English option, in order to maintain and develop communication skills needed for most career paths.
In Year 12, we recommend students choose Maths, as many careers require L2 numeracy. If you choose Maths, select one of the alternatives: either L2, L2 Applied, L3 Calculus or L3 Statistics.
In Year 11, we recommend students choose Science, as this leads to a range of career pathways. There are 4 option subjects at year 11.
