THE CURRICULUM
During the last few years significant investment has been made in the curriculum so that we can now cater for all needs and aspirations. A variety of courses, both vocational and academic, are available at all levels.

Year 7, 8, 9 (KEY STAGE 3)
All students study English, Mathematics, Science, IT, Technology, History, Geography, Art, Music, PE, French and/or Spanish, RE and Life Studies.

Years 10 & 11 (KEY STAGE 4)
Students continue with English, English Literature, Mathematics, Science, Life Studies and PE. Different academic routes are available to all students and as a result students choose a baccalaureate subject from History, Geography, French and Spanish.

Students will also choose up to three more courses from a list that includes, French, Spanish, Art, Photography, Geography, History, PE, RE, Computer Science, Child Development & Care, Film Studies, Drama, Business, Health & Social Care, IT, Engineering, Music, Public Services, Hair & Beauty, Food Preparation & Nutrition, Materials Technology and Fashion & Textiles.

We are always looking for new opportunities to expand our curriculum. New developments will appear here on the school website.

The Sixth Form at The Duchess’s Community High School
We have a great deal to offer, so it’s hardly surprising that a large number of our Year 11 students decide to stay with us. Last year a massive majority of our Year 12 and Year 13 students stated that they would recommend Sixth Form life to other students.
