Key Stage 4 Curriculum

In order to fulfil the requirements of the Department of Education’s ‘Entitlement Framework Curriculum’, pupils will study the core curriculum and make additional choices from all the subjects on offer.

Reflecting the all ability nature of the school, pupils are offered varied pathways based on their performance at Key Stage 3, Careers Education Information Advice and Guidance (CEIAG) and their subject choices. This results in some of our pupils at Key Stage 4 following courses offered in conjunction with the Southern Regional College at both their Kilkeel and Newry campuses. In addition, many of these pupils will also undertake one day’s work experience per week with an employer during Year 12.
