Our current Year 6 children will be the first year group to take their GCSE’s at Ridgeway. They will choose their ‘Options’ at the end of year 8 and decide which GCSE subjects they will study from the start of Year 9.
Ridgeway will offer the following subjects:
dual award science
modern languages (French & German)
DT (textiles, food, graphics & resistance materials)
environment & land based studies
Ridgeway will follow government policy of offering the E-Bacc which means all pupils must take the following subjects: English, maths, history OR geography, the sciences and a language. More information on the E-Bacc can be found at https://www.gov.uk/english-baccalaureate-information-for-schools
As with any school, the delivery of subjects outside the E-Bacc are liable to change dependent on pupil choice and government policy.
