Since the Key Stage 4 Options Evening, there have been some course changes.  The following qualifications will be studied from September 2017:

Business Course: GCSE Business will be taught in place of the Business and Enterprise VCERT course.

This is a new specification GCSE that is assessed via 100% terminal examination at the end of Year 11.  There is no coursework unit.

Students will study and investigate a range of topics including the role of interest rates, where new business ideas come from, the roles of social media and logistics and profit margins.

This course is great preparation for anyone looking at a career in business or progression to A level qualifications.

Drama Course: Level 2 BTEC Tech Award in Performing Arts will be taught in place of the Level 2 BTEC Award in Performing Arts.

Health and Social Course: Level 2 BTEC Tech Award in Health and Social Care will be taught in place of the Level 2 BTEC Award in Health and Social Care.

There are the newly revised Level 2 BTEC qualifications in Health and Social Care and Performing Arts.  They consist of three units of study.  The BTEC Tech Awards are assessed by two internally assessed units of work and one externally assessed component.  The externally assessed component builds directly on Components 1 and 2 and enables learning to be brought together and related to a real-life situation.
