At Writhlington School we aim to create opportunities and inspire achievement in everything we do. Our curriculum aims to develop students with a growth mindset who are respectful, aspirational, resilient and communicative. It will equip our students with the skills, knowledge and understanding needed to make the most of life’s opportunities and be successful in it whilst fulfilling their ambitions. A crucial element of this is the subjects that our students study during Years 10 and 11.
In Key Stage 4 (Years 10 and 11) we offer a broad and balanced programme to all. Students follow a range of subjects, including the core subjects of English, Maths, Science, Personal, Social and Health Education (PSHE) which includes Careers Information, Advice and Guidance and Physical Education.
