KS4 Curriculum

Key Stage 4 is comprised of Years 9, 10 and 11.

The KS4 Curriculum booklets outline the courses and level of qualification offered for each year group, and are downloadable from the menu on the left. The information is also available to view via the subject links in the menu on the left.

Aims of Our Curriculum 

Burnt Mill Academy is committed to providing a broad, balanced, accessible and inclusive curriculum for all our students. It is our aim to provide equally for the needs of all our students and offer support, where necessary, to allow access to the full curriculum. We aim for excellence for all and are committed to ensuring that students can enjoy their studies and achieve success.

We want to make sure that each student has a positive learning experience and we believe that our curriculum will motivate and engage students, challenging them to achieve to the very best of their ability.

We will ensure that, where possible, all students have the opportunity to study their preferred courses and they are provided with the necessary information, guidance and support that will enable them to make these important choices. 

Curriculum change and how it will affect you

All GCSE curriculums will change over the next two years. At GCSE, English Language, English Literature and Mathematics there have been changes to the curriculum from September 2015. The courses will be much more academically demanding and will be assessed by an examination at the end of year 11 only. More information about individual subjects can be found on the pages that follow.

E-BACC

The English Baccalaureate (E-Bacc) was introduced as a performance measure for schools in England in the 2010 performance tables. It is not a qualification. The measure recognises students that have achieved a C grade or better in 5 subjects from GCSE English, Mathe- matics, History or Geography, two Sciences, Computer Science and a modern foreign language. Students who are considering entry to a top university would be best advised to choose the E-Bacc subjects. All students, where possible, should do this too, for breadth and balance in their chosen courses. 

PROGRESS 8 

Progress 8 was introduced for all schools in 2016 and will replace the 5 A* - C measure. This is a great step forward for schools as it will calculate a students’ progress throughout the GCSE courses regardless of ability. Progress 8 encourages you to have a broad and balanced GCSE portfolio. There is strong governmental advice about the expected spread of subjects needed for all students regardless of what you wish to do, to keep you competitive in the future.

The table below shows how Progress 8 is calculated. The final GCSE scores from your best 8 are added together and then looked at against the score that you should have achieved.
