Key Stage 4 (Y10 & 11)

During Year 10 and 11 the majority of students are working at Key Stage 4 (KS4). Some students may be invited to consider the Vocational Pathway.

Every student will experience a well-balanced and comprehensive curriculum that enhances informed intellectual development and moral character. Our aim is to improve life chances, social mobility and preparedness for employment. The Key Stage 4 curriculum will encourage Haygrove students to have a positive impact on society whilst encouraging and maintaining high levels of personal motivation for success.

Students’ classroom learning is complemented by other enrichment activities such as Work Experience, Extra Curricular trips and clubs, the Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme and a range of Student Leadership opportunities such as Junior Leadership Team, Prefects and House Captains/Deputies.

Further detail about subject content can be found on individual subject web pages and in our Assessment Information Booklet

If you require further information about the KS4 curriculum please contact Mrs L Mills by phone, email or the Contact Us form.
