Year 9 Options Evening – Thursday 21st March
We deliver a broad and balanced curriculum at BFS. Our extended school day allows us to ensure that all pupils have mastered the basics, and hence we give extra time to English and mathematics.
All pupils study the following lessons in Years 7-9 per week:
Maths, English, science, Spanish, PE, religious education, history, geography, art, music, graphics, drama, computing and two electives. Many pupils go on to take French as well.
In music, all pupils learn how to play at least one musical instrument and there are opportunities to play in the school orchestra or sing in the choir.
In Key Stage 4, all pupils continue to study a broad and balanced academic curriculum to GCSE, but are able to opt into additional subjects. All pupils study maths, English literature and English language, Spanish or French, biology, chemistry, physics, PE, history or geography, two other options and two electives. We enter pupils for rigorous GCSE examinations at the end of year 11 and support this with independent careers advice for all.
We work very hard on the content of our curriculum in each subject across all of their five years at BFS to ensure that pupils gain the necessary knowledge to play a full part in shaping the world as young adults.
The curriculum is supported by high-quality electives/enrichment activities for all years.
