GCSE Options

At Alder we are proud to offer a broad and balanced curriculum, with KS4 options which include:

  • Core, additional and triple science
  • Computer Science
  • Business and Communications
  • History
  • Geography
  • RE
  • Spanish
  • French
  • PE
  • Sociology
  • Catering
  • Textiles
  • Photography
  • Citizenship

However as the Government is making it compulsory  for students to study for the English baccalaureate (Ebacc) from 2017, the number of options may be reduced as  there will be a focus on including Humanities (History and Geography) and MFL (French and Spanish) in the forthcoming years.

Students choose their options at the end of year 9.
