Key Stage 4

Key Stage 4 pupils study a core of subjects that allow them to continue to access a broad and balanced education that prepares them for access a range of qualifications at Key Stage 5.

There are two academic pathways at Key Stage 4, pathway one being the most academic and pathway 2 offering vocational and alternative options. We recognise that pupils at St Dominic’s can have strengths and areas of challenge in different areas so we also offer the ability to pick a personalised route at Key Stage 4 that allows pupils to work towards their strengths. For detailed information about study at Key Stage 4, please click on the below link Year 9 Options Booklet 

The range of subjects on offer at Key Stage 4 are: English, Maths, Science, Humanities, Computing, Art, Design Technology, Food Technology, Physical Education, PSHCE and Languages. Please see below further information on these subjects.
