KS4 Information

Students at The Priory School will study a range of subjects throughout Years 10 and 11, which form the KS4 years of their education. While some subject areas are compulsory (e.g. English, Maths and Science) students will have had a degree of choice at the end of Year 9 regarding what they then study at KS4. The school promotes a range of academic and vocational courses for study. These are exciting but challenging years, culminating in a number of public exams at the end of Year 11. The school is committed to supporting students through each obstacle and encounter they face, both in and out of the classroom. We continue to offer wellbeing support at this key time and academic staff strive to help students and parents to best prepare for examinations. As parents, you will receive regular communications via Progress Checks and parental information and teacher consultation evenings. Our Raising Aspirations team continue to open young people’s minds as they consider what their next step in education or the world of work may be. This may be through work experience trips, alternative provision or visits to further education establishments. We have seen some fantastic results from our Key Stage 4 students in recent years and believe we are well placed for this to continue.

On the links below, you will find copies of information slides that staff share with parents during some of our key evenings across Key Stage 4.
