At Rokeby we offer a broad and balanced curriculum, which prepares students for further education and employment and equips them with the qualifications, knowledge, skills and morals needed to succeed.
Key Stage 3 (Years 7, 8 & 9)
Our Key Stage 3 curriculum is studied over three years. Students study the full range of national curriculum subjects, which provides them with the foundation for Key Stage 4 and further education.
English, Maths & Science are taught in ability sets, allowing stretch for the most able and support where needed. All other subjects are taught in tutor groups, assisting students in building good academic and pastoral relationships with their peers.
At Key Stage 3 students study:
- Languages (French or Spanish)
- Humanities (History, Geography, Religious Education, RSHE)
- Technology (Graphics, Resistant Materials, Food Technology)
- Computer Science
- The Arts (Art, Drama & Music)
- Physical Education & Dance
In addition, any student who is literate in a community language is encouraged to take a GCSE in that language before the end of Key Stage 3.
Key Stage 4 (Years 10 & 11)
At Key Stage 4 students continue to study the ‘core’ curriculum subjects, as well as two ‘option’ subjects of their choice. This provides students with a broad range of academic qualifications upon which they can build their future study and career pathways.
Students choose their GCSE option subjects in Year 9. Our Year 9 Options Booklet provides a detailed overview of the course content and assessment for each subject
