Darwen Aldridge Enterprise Studio School

KS4

The Studio’s KS4 curriculum enables students to study core GCSE subjects of English Language, English literature, maths and combined sciences. Students then opt to follow a specialist pathway of option subjects in the following specialist areas

Creative Sector pathway

GCSE Graphic Design, GCSE Photography & BTEC Level 2 TV & Film Production.

Digital Sector pathway 

GCSE Computing, BTEC Level 2 Digital Technologies & BTEC Level 2 Game Design.

Care Sector pathway

GCSE Citizenship, BTEC Leve 2 Health & Social Care & BTEC Leve 2 Child Development.

 

The above subjects are further supported with weekly timetabled reading and physical education studies.

 


The curriculum is designed to provide breadth & depth in the specialist areas that build upon a strong foundation of core studies. The combination of specialist subject qualifications gives students a level of skill to a greater depth than can be experienced in a traditional option choice setting. This suite of qualifications enables students to progress through to our own specialist 6th form studies or other areas of Level 3 study.
