Years 10-11 (ages 14-16)
At Kent College, we are proud of our ability to provide bespoke timetables at this level. Options are not forced upon the students. A strong element of flexibility allows courses to be tailor made for each individual.
For the vast majority of students, the curriculum pattern will be to study English Language, English Literature, Mathematics and Religious Studies as compulsory subjects. They will then choose their additional examination subjects from the following options: Art, Biology, Chemistry, Design and Technology Graphic Products, Design and Technology Resistant Materials, Drama, Electronics, English as an Additional Language, French, Media, Food and Nutrition, German, Geography, History, Music, Physical Education, Physics, Science and Spanish.
The opportunity to demonstrate leadership is available in all activities, but none more so than by participating in the Duke of Edinburgh award. Many move from the Bronze Award at this stage to the Gold Award in the Sixth Form.
Music, sport and drama are an integral part of school life, and recent school productions have centred around the skills of students in this age group.
Outside the examination classes there is a programme of PSHE lessons which include careers education, work experience and discussion-based activities relating to a number of moral and ethical issues.
