Our GCSE Curriculum is based on a 3-year model. With the expansion of content in all Key Stage 4 courses, a three year timespan allows teachers to develop and secure deeper learning of knowledge and skills. This has never been more prevalent, due to the current pandemic and amount of face to face lesson time students have missed.
This extended time enables our students to become more engaged in their work to exceed their Estimated Grades and to achieve Challenge Grades to which all Saint Martin’s students should aspire.
It is advised that you read and study carefully the information in the Options Booklet, on all of the subjects available, to find out as much as possible about the options that your child may choose. Family involvement is crucial to the process and, along with our staff at school, provides a positive and supportive network for our students.
It is important to consider which subjects will offer the greatest opportunity of success, reflecting strengths, interests and future career pathways. All of the courses offered require determination, dedication and enthusiasm.
