Key Stage 4

At Carlton le Willows Academy we follow a three year Key Stage 3 (Years 7, 8 and 9) and then a 2 year Key Stage 4 (Years 10 and 11). At the end of Year 9, students opt for subjects that they will study in Years 10 and 11 and they complete those subjects by the end of Year 11.

In Years 10 and 11 students follow a core curriculum of English Language, English Literature, Mathematics, and Combined Science. Along with this all students will also take PE

Students have the opportunity to take four further GCSE (or equivalent) option courses from our options package. At least one humanity, History or Geography, is compulsory and most students are expected to study a foreign language.
