Curriculum

At Carisbrooke College, we provide a broad and balanced curriculum because we understand that students need to be engaged in their learning and able to follow courses in which they are interested, if they are to achieve their potential.

Key Stage 3

Throughout Key Stage 3, all students receive English, mathematics and science tuition. Additionally, students are taught modern foreign languages, history, geography, religious education, technology and computing. All students have weekly timetabled PE and creative arts lessons (drama, music and art). Where necessary, students may have a tailored curriculum which increases the amount of literacy support they receive in order to prepare them for Key Stage 4.

Personal, Social and Health Education (PSHE) is delivered through our bespoke social studies programme, a tutor lesson, assemblies, plays and other organised activities.

Key Stage 4

We currently deliver our Key Stage 4 curriculum to Years 10 and 11 with students continuing their studies in English, mathematics, science, PE, but also having an opportunity to choose four additional subjects. These are chosen in March of Year 9 and include subjects they have already experienced, as well as new areas of study, such as health and social care. All students have the opportunity, and are encouraged to complete, the English Baccalaureate in Key Stage 4, which involves studying English, mathematics, science, a modern foreign language and either history or geography.

Key Stage 5

The Island VI Form, part of the Isle of Wight Education Federation (IWEF), in the heart of Newport, offers a full range of Level 3 academic courses. Please see the Island VI Form website for more details.
