Key Stage 4
At Beckfoot, Key Stage Four refers to years 10 and 11.
Students have 25 hours of learning a week. You can see how this is broken down on Our Curriculum Model.
Students also have a designated PSHCE (Personal, Social, Health and Citizenship Education) session each week.
All students have personalised pathways that suit their aspirations for life. A variety of enrichment opportunities also help build their confidence, skills and self-esteem.
These pathways include a range of academic and vocational opportunities.
All students study:
· Science (Triple or Double)
· Core PE (non-certified)
Students choose three options from:
· Religious Education
· Computer Science
· Information Technology
· Product Design
· PE Btec
· Music Technology
· Performance Studies
Whilst we do not insist on students following the EBACC pathway, we do encourage this as a route through GCSEs and onto post 16. The majority of students will choose at least one subject from History, Geography, French, German or Computer Science to ensure that they maintain a breadth of study right up to the end of Year 11.
