All students in year 9, 10 and 11 at Tudor Grange Academy Kingshurst are expected to follow a broad and balanced personalised curriculum that aims to provide all students with the knowledge, skills and understanding to enable to continue their studies at Post- 16.
Tudor Grange Academy Kingshurst offers students the opportunity to study a wide range of courses including GCSE and BTEC qualifications. These courses have been selected to provide students with the opportunity to personalise their curriculum to suit their individual needs.
As part of the options process, students have been presented with information from each Head of Faculty explaining the qualifications that are on offer. This will be combined with the Options evening, where parents, carers and students will have the opportunity to discuss the qualifications with key members of staff, and the year 8 Parent’s evening, where discussions with current subject teachers can take place. This interaction between staff, parents and students will provide students with guidance, enabling them to make the right options choices for them.
It is important for students to select a balanced curriculum but also to consider what they enjoy studying and also what would be useful for any future career aspirations. The so called ‘EBACC’ subjects are increasingly important and where possible students should aim to select subjects that provide a balance of EBACC and other areas of the curriculum.
All GCSE subjects now use the new 9-1 grading system instead of A*-G. These booklets provide information on the core part of the curriculum plus the option blocks and instructions for choosing option subjects. Each subject details brief information about what you will study and how you will be assessed.
Please note that while will do our best to ensure that all students get their preferred options choices, we cannot guarantee this, and additionally that some courses and specifications are currently still being accredited so the information contained in these booklets is correct at the time of printing. We may not be in the position to offer all courses in the booklets if the uptake is not sufficient for a particular course.
Option choices are now closed.
Please contact Miss Barker if you have any queries.
