Key Stage 4 symbolises a significant transition in the lives of our students. It brings both personal and academic challenges as they embark on their journey of discovery to adulthood. It is also a time of excitement, reward and great fulfilment. The Form Tutor remains the principle point of contact but the Head of Key Stage is also happy to meet with students and parents at any time.


GCSE's are now a continuous 2 year programme in all subjects. The assessment process begins in Year 11 through Controlled Assessment and Modular Exams and is on-going until the end of Year 12. To try and alleviate the pressure this can cause, subject heads have agreed a Controlled Assessment Calendar which endeavours, where possible, to avoid overburdening students.


The aims and objectives of the Pastoral Programme are grounded in the school's Pastoral Care Policy and reflect the Vision and Aims of the college. It strives for the maximum development of each pupil, intellectually, spiritually, academically and vocationally. The well-being and personal development of each individual pupil are of prime importance. Topics include: Healthy Living; Life - A ‘Risky Business'; Alcohol Awareness; Love for Life; Coping with Stress; Conflict Resolution; Study Skills; Careers Programme and Personal Hygiene. Students are regularly consulted with regard to content and format to ensure that it is relevant and appealing. The Programme is supported by presentations from external organisations.


Students are encouraged to become actively involved iin at least one of the extensive range of extra-curricular activities on offer each day at 3.30pm. In addition, many avail of the opportunity to develop personal qualities, interests and talents and gain valuable experience by helping with the organisation of events and activities.
