In the first three years at King James’s school, all students follow the same compulsory programme of study.

However, in Year 9, students are given the opportunity to make a number of choices regarding the subjects and the types of courses they wish to study in Years 10 and 11.

At King James’s School, we make a clear commitment to excellence and we pride ourselves on the provision of a personalised curriculum designed to meet the needs of all our students. Our offer allows all students to achieve academically and socially in their GCSE years and beyond. To achieve this, we provide a variety of curriculum ‘pathways’. 

The Guided Pathway booklet (click here) looks in detail at each subject offered at King James’s. It also highlights the topic areas covered within each subject, how each subject will be assessed, and possible future progression routes to which it could lead.
