KS4 Options

We currently offer options to give Key Stage 4 pupils more choice in what they study. 

Year 9 pupils are given the following to choose between:
  • GCSE French or BTEC Vocational Studies
  • WJEC History Diploma or ASDAN
  • GCSE Product Design or WJEC Preparing for Life - Skills Pathway
Letters are sent home in the Summer Term and discussions/decisions are made at the KS3 Parents Evening later that term. Please download the document attached which will detail what is involved in each of these options.
Although some qualifications are aimed at higher learners, the most important factor is usually the pupil's desire to join that subject. All subjects also lead to qualifications.
As well as these choices, pupils can also consider joining classes at Burlington Danes Academy (BDA) if this is a suitable option.
