CURRICULUM iNFORMATION

YEAR 9 - 11

At the Studio, we believe that young people who already have a clear view of their future careers should be able to spend as much time as possible on their chosen options, whilst still getting the grounding that they need in the core subjects of Maths, English and Science
All Year 9, 10 and 11 students will study for the following GCSEs:-
  • GCSE English Language
  • GCSE English Literature
  • GCSE Mathematics
  • GCSE Core Science
