The Buckingham School

Key Stage 4 Curriculum

Key Stage 4 Curriculum (Years 9, 10 and 11)

We believe in preparing your child for an aspirational pathway and will be giving them choices based on what we believe suits their academic ability and potential.  The offer is broad and balanced, and allows for many opportunities Post 16 and at University.

Our curriculum at The Buckingham School will meet the needs of all students and will serve to provide them with an education which challenges and engages; is linked to individual student’s abilities and identified progression plans; and prepares all students for life, further learning, employment and training. 

We will do this by:

  • Providing all students with extensive information, advice and guidance on all Options
  • Supporting students with career choices through career education, guidance and research opportunities
  • Enabling students to consider and define their own career pathways and future plans in order to enable them to make effective choices
  • Providing parents and carers with accessible information and with opportunities for face-to-face information and guidance so that they are able to effectively support students in the options process
  • Providing students and parents/carers with signposts to further information and impartial guidance.

We will guide students towards:

  • Subjects they are good at
  • Subjects they enjoy
  • Subjects that will stretch and challenge them
  • A balanced range of subjects
  • Subjects that are linked to individual progression plans Post 16 and beyond.
