Our Curriculum

Key Stage 4 Options

Options choices mark an exciting point in your child’s journey at Beckfoot Thornton, when you and your child make decisions about some of the subjects that they will be studying Y10 and Y11 

 

We want our students to be ambitious about their success and to be prepared for the opportunities, responsibilities, and experiences of adult life and to overcome any barriers to learning that they may have. 

 

Our students will study the following subjects: 

  • English language and literature—2 GCSE qualifications 
  • Mathematics—1 GCSE qualification 
  • Science—most students will study 2 GCSEs in science, with some students studying separate sciences which leads to 3 GCSEs, one each in Biology, Chemistry and Physics. Both routes are designed to be pathways to A-Level science courses. 
  • A humanities GCSE 

 

In addition to this, students will also choose from a range of other subjects that will result in either a GCSE or Vocational Award. Detailed information will be sent to students in a personalised booklet in Term 2 of Year 9 and students will be given support in school to make the right decisions through dedicated form time, assemblies and support from subject tutors.
