Key Stage 4

In Years 9, 10 and 11 the students can follow up to ten courses leading to GCSEs or other equivalent qualifications.  All students take a ‘core’ of subjects including English, Mathematics, Science, ICT, Values Education and Physical Education.

In addition to this, students can choose to study from:

Art, ASDAN, Business Studies, Catering, Drama, French, Geography, History, ICT (AiDa, CiDA), Film Studies, Media Studies, Music, Physical Education (BTec and GCSE), Spanish, Technology: Textiles, Product Design, Resistant Materials.

For some students, who we feel would benefit more from work-related learning, we introduce time at local colleges and workplaces.  We work closely with Eastleigh College, Sparsholt, Above Bar for Hair College and SETA.

The high standard of learning which takes place at Crestwood is reflected in our excellent examination results and the very high percentage of our leavers who go on to further education, employment or training.

All students are taught for 25 hours a week, excluding registration and assembly time.  The lessons are 75 minutes in length and each student has 4 lessons per day.
