Key Stage 4 : Year 10 & 11
Key Stage 4 (KS4) is part of the National Curriculum taught to children between the ages of 14 and 16 in their last 2 years of secondary school. Most Key Stage 4 pupils work towards their national qualifications, for example their GCSEs in England.
Aside from teaching the relevant subject and to deepen a pupil’s knowledge, our ambition is to install confidence in young students that is an essential part of growing up. The ability of being able to express yourself so they can fully participate in the society that surrounds them.
Our lessons for this age group can vary in length, they are often conducted on a 1-on-1 basis. This way the lessons can be planned on specifc needs, adapting to your requirements. However, small groups of up to 4 students can also be arranged. To express your interest, or enquire about availability, please Contact Us directly.
Any teacher educating Key Stage 4 takes on many roles. During each lesson a teacher could perform roles varying from “Ally” to “Challenger”, “Provocateur” and even “Devil’s advocate”. The attempt is to enhance the learning within the class, or to challenge their thinking in a new way.
Depending on subject taken pupils will be encouraged to communicate verbally their initial individual thoughts on the issue. Certain activity could focus more on developing clarity in communication and observation. Whilst others allow pupils to prioritise ideas and information and discuss justifications for their choices. This could then be easily transferred into different learning areas.
The Compulsory national curriculum subjects are the ‘core’ and ‘foundation’ subjects. Detailed summary of topics for core subjects for Maths and English & Literature for Key Stage 4 is stated below.
Behind the scenes, planning is underway for detailed revision GCSE course for Maths and English. You can register your interest through our Contact Us page.
