Key Stage 4

Students in Key Stage 4 follow a core curriculum of:

English (Language and Literature)

Mathematics

Science

RE

MFL (French or Spanish)

PHSCEE

PE

In addition students select 2 option subjects from a broad offer including Art, Business, Computer Science, Geography, History, ICT, Media, Music and Sport BTEC.

We encourage students to work closely with their parents/carers to choose the option subjects they have the most interest in and which they believe will provide them with the necessary skills and qualifications for the next stage of life.  The use of data enables staff to support students in making the right decisions so that the prospects of further education and career choice can be assured.

Home learning is set regularly in all subjects and students have access to a wide range of resources to support their learning away from school such as Active Learn, Doddle, GCSE Pod and Kerboodle as well as revision guides.

These strategies have greatly enhanced our students' self-esteem and belief in their abilities and, in turn, our attainment figures.  Please see Academic Success page for details of our examination results.  It is the intention of all staff at St Thomas More Language College to prepare all students for the smooth transition to Key Stage 5 and to ensure they have the attributes and knowledge required to become independent and lifelong learners.

Further details about the options we offer can be found on our subject-specific pages.
