Subjects

Senior (Ages 13-16)

The Wellingborough Senior School curriculum is designed to offer a range of Year 9 and GCSE subjects. In this section, the subjects available from Years 9 to 11 are explained in detail, helping pupils to make informed choices about which GCSE subjects they choose to study.  Some pupils have no difficulty with this choice; they are quite sure which subjects they wish to study to GCSE. For others, however, the choice is less obvious. We hope that this section will be helpful and that it will give pupils and parents some idea of the content of each subject’s curriculum.

We also hope this area will inform pupils ahead of their GCSE choices. Year 10 is essentially the entry point to the major public examination phase of a pupil’s education. Good working habits are even more important from this point onwards. Motivation, above all, is essential. For this reason it is very important that pupils are happy with the choices they make, and this is why we offer such a broad and balanced range of subjects at the school.
