Newbridge’s Key Stage 4 curriculum is tailored to our students’ individual needs, aspirations and interests.
Students can study a range of qualifications that comprise a core programme and additional option subjects. The core programme consists of GCSE courses in;
- English Language
- English Literature
- Combined Science (equal to two GCSEs)
- History and/or Geography
- Together with non-examined courses in practical PE, Personal Development/RSE, Ethics and Philosophy and Careers.
Students then have additional option subjects which they can choose.
English Baccalaureate (EBacc)
By studying History or Geography and French, students are eligible to achieve the English Baccalaureate (EBacc). A study by the UCL Institute of Education shows that studying subjects included in the Ebacc provides students with greater opportunities in further education and increases the likelihood that a student will stay on in full-time education. With its broad range of academic and enriching subjects, the EBacc pathway provides students with a strong platform for A Level study in the Sixth Form. Students who achieve the English Baccalaureate will ultimately progress to higher education or advanced apprenticeships.
