Year 9 Options Evening - Wednesday 28th February 2024

Your child is at a critical point in their education, we aim to ensure that you can help them to make the best choices for their GCSE options.

At The John Roan School, we are committed to all of our students being successful. Therefore, we have built our curriculum at Key Stage 4 (Years 10 and 11) to: 

  • Challenge all students, of all abilities;  
  • Develop students’ skills that reflect the demands of work and everyday life; 
  • Ensure that all students leave the school with the qualifications, skills and knowledge to continue to university, employment or training. 

In addition to a balanced package of examination courses and tutorial support, our curriculum entitlement comprises: 

  • PRIDE - a programme of Personal, Social, Health, and Economic Education (PSHE) and Religious Studies delivered across Years 10 and 11. This programme will include the statutory responsibility to deliver Sex Education and Careers Education.
