KS4 Curriculum Intro:

At Key Stage 4 we prepare students for achieving two GCSEs – English Language and English Literature. They are taught alongside each other with schemes and units that develop transferrable skills.

The awarding body, AQA, requires students to complete controlled assessments which are written in class and exams which are at the end of Year 11.
