Every child is different – they have different interests and differing abilities to manage, and cope with, their studying. Whilst students can study 7 subjects or more, there is no minimum or maximum number of subjects that any student is required to study at any level of their education. 
 
The following information will help you as you read through the choice of subjects available: 
Students can choose up to 7 subjects from the comprehensive range of subjects set out below as part of our KS3 Programme. 
There is no requirement to do 7 subjects. Students can choose fewer than 7 but the price of our programme remains the same. 
Students can choose more than 7 subjects at an additional cost. 
Each subject provides the foundational knowledge required to pursue any of these subjects at GCSE and beyond.
