路径是什么意思?

The Academy has designed pathways for its students at Key Stage 4 (Years 10 and 11). The pathways are decided based on students’ prior attainment in their subjects from when they started at the school. We were the 69th best school in the UK for student progress last year out of over 6,000所学校, so we have a lot of experience and success with getting students to pick the right pathways. We ensure students take courses that are suitable for them and give them the best possible chance of success. All students in KS4 study a core of required subjects. 这些包括:

  • 英语普通中等教育证书考试
  • 英语文学普通中等教育证书考试
  • 普通中等教育证书考试数学作业
  • 科学的普通中等教育证书考试
  • 再保险普通中等教育证书考试
  • 核心体育

A为EBacc 普通中等教育证书考试路径 for students with the highest prior attainment. These students will pick either Geography or History, 然后是法语或西班牙语, and finally a further 普通中等教育证书考试 or BTEC course of their choice.

B is the EBacc Vocational pathway. These students will pick either Geography or History, 然后是法语或西班牙语 and finally one BTEC qualification of their choice or Art 普通中等教育证书考试.

C是职业路径. These students will pick two BTEC courses or one BTEC and Art 普通中等教育证书考试, and then pick one further 普通中等教育证书考试 subject.

D is the Vocational Support pathway. This is for students that need extra support in English and 数学. These students will pick two BTEC courses or one BTEC and Art 普通中等教育证书考试. They will not choose another subject as instead they will get more support in English and 数学 to help their grades in these subjects.


什么是EBacc?

英语学士学位 is not a qualification in itself; it is a group of qualifications in ‘facilitating’ subjects – these are subjects which develop good learning skills, and which universities consider to be useful for higher education.

Taking the EBacc is about having a wide range of these subjects and keeping your options open for studies at Key Stage 5. Although it is important to be aware that the EBacc is not needed to go to university, though there are some universities that require a 普通中等教育证书考试 in a language.

In order to achieve the English Baccalaureate, you will need a good 普通中等教育证书考试 grade (9-5) in English, 数学, 科学, 现代外语, 历史或地理.


我的时间表是什么样子的?

At 美高梅官方娱乐网址 we have a two-week timetable. Over the fortnight, students attend three 100-minute lessons daily. 除此之外, 周一,周四, students have a 35-minute pastoral tutor session or assembly.

学生 have 30 lessons a fortnight. For all KS4 students, 17 of these lessons are dedicated to English, 数学 and 科学. Core time is also dedicated to RE and PE. 选项 subjects have either three or four lessons a fortnight.

学生 in Year 11 receive the additional provision of an extra lesson or supervised independent study Tuesday-Thursday, 有针对性的支持会议.


是什么 the different course types on offer?

普通中等教育证书考试 (General Certificate of Secondary Education)

With a 普通中等教育证书考试 you gain a grade from 9-1 (with 9 being the highest grade). The course consists of mostly examinations taken at the end of Year 11 but there are some elements of coursework or controlled assessment in some subjects. Some 普通中等教育证书考试 courses are very practical, such as 普通中等教育证书考试 Art or Drama.

BTEC (Business and Technology Education Council award)

With a BTEC you learn about a subject in a more practical, work related manner. 评估 is spread out across Years 10 and 11. These courses are for those who prefer to do more coursework, and who enjoy independent learning and practical activity. There will also be an examination and you must pass this in order to pass the course. You can achieve Pass, Merit or Distinction. These Level 2 courses are the equivalent to one 普通中等教育证书考试.

You can find out more about a particular course by reading the page in this booklet or speaking to the teacher leading the course.
