KS4 Progression

It is always difficult to make decisions about which courses to follow at GCSE and often there are no right or wrong answers. However, the more informed you are, the easier the decision making process. The attached booklet will give you the information you need to help you make the best possible decision for your future.

In the following pages you will be able to read about the subjects you can study in Years 10 and 11. When making your decisions it is important to think about:

KS4 Progression Booklet 2019-2020

  • The subjects you like. You will often be more successful at what you enjoy!
  • Where you want to be in the future: which subjects will help you with Sixth Form, University or employment.
  • Your studies and not your social life! Don’t study a subject just because your friends are doing so, or because you liked a teacher you had in a subject in the past —you need to think about the best thing for you in the future.
  • Asking the questions which will help you to find out as much as you can about each course.


Good luck!
