English Baccalaureate

As part of the English Baccalaureate curriculum, students study the core of English, Mathematics and Science, with a choice of a Modern Foreign Language (French or Spanish) and a Humanities subject, (either Geography or History). Currently by achieving 5-9 grades in all five subjects, students will be eligible for the English Baccalaureate. The Computing GCSE can also be used as an English Baccalaureate subject to replace Science if required. Our options structure allows pupils to select subjects as part of the English Baccalaureate should they wish, alongside a range of other course options.
