KS4

At Key Stage 4 we follow two different exam boards. Year 11’s currently study the WJEC exam board and Year 10’s follow EDEXCEL exam board. In Year 10 students study unit 10 from EDEXCEL, focussing on Catholic beliefs, papacy and the Church. Next year Year 11 will study unit 3, looking at modern ethical dilemmas with different Christian responses to them.   There are a variety of teaching methods used and at the end of each topic pupils complete an assessment using GCSE questions and marked according to the exam board criteria.

Every student is required to have a copy of a revision book, which are provided by the department. Revision sessions are held on Saturdays and during half terms - pupils will be identified and invited to attend these throughout the Key stage. Interventions will also be put in place.
