Pre -16 Curriculum GCSE
The Pre-16 Curriculum
From 2018 we will be offering a GCSE Foundation year for students beginning year 9. The course will cover learning that thoroughly prepares students for the demands of all the 1-9 GCSEs offered at CAST. This is so that students have learnt the important basics and have a head-start in covering the GCSE specifications in year 10 and 11.
In Year 10 and 11, all students take English (Literature and Language), Maths, PE, Separate Biology, Chemistry and Physics and the ‘Challenge Day’ (This includes a GCSE equivalent technical STEM subject). Students also take either Computer Science or IT and Geography or Psychology as option subjects.
