In Year 10 (14 years old, Key Stage 4), the curriculum will meet the national requirements for this stage in the students’ education.
The curriculum will be broad and rigorous with teaching time split between core and specialist technical studies in a ratio of 60:40.
UTC Bolton only offers separate science GCSE awards in physics, chemistry and biology. We believe the dual award science and additional science and any other combination of sciences will not prepare people for medical and engineering professions.
Core studies will include: English (language and literature), mathematics, separate sciences (physics, chemistry and biology) and a Modern Foreign Language .
Options will include:
GCSEs in Computer Science, Geography, History, Business Studies and PE.
