Curriculum Intent: Years 10 & 11

  • The Key Stage 4 curriculum at The Bulwell Academy is ambitious and equips all pupils with the knowledge, skills and understanding they needs to strive for excellence. Building on their experience from the Key Stage 3 curriculum, pupils have the opportunity to study core subjects in more detail, while also broadening their horizons by accessing a wide variety of new option subjects. 
  • The curriculum is designed to support the mastery of topic, with students encouraged to develop their learning and understanding linked to the knowledge and skills they will be examined on at GCSE and pursue further in Key Stage 5.
