Key Stage 4: Years 10 & 11

Key Stage 4 (Years 10 and 11) 

A broad academic curriculum is maintained for all students in years 10 and 11. At GCSE, most students can study the English Baccalaureate (EBACC). This curriculum recognises that our students can pursue a broad range of rigorous academic subjects at GCSE, and this is ideal preparation for post-16 study and provides all students with a broad range of academic subjects upon which to build any future career. We also offer a small number of vocational qualifications in Key Stage 4. 

We believe that the cognitive development afforded by the study of the subjects included in the English Baccalaureate (English, mathematics, science, humanities, and languages) provides a useful framework for intellectual growth for most Trinity students. As a consequence, students are well prepared to access A-level courses and further study beyond year 11. 

Students begin to take responsibility for their own learning through guided choices of some GCSE courses, supporting their transition to sixth form study. 

Our normal expectation is that students will study GCSE courses in English Literature, English Language, mathematics, either history or geography, a modern language, three sciences and religious studies, with one further GCSE course from art, product design, food and nutrition, physical education, history, geography, computer science, drama and music. Students are also able to opt to take Level 2 BTECS in Creative iMedia, Catering and Performing Arts.
