Marshland High School

Key Stage 4 - Step up to GCSE

As a GCSE student at Marshland High School, your Key Stage 4 curriculum will begin in Year 10 and build on the prior foundations of a Knowledge Rich Curriculum which began in Key Stage 3.

Year 10 will end with a series of examinations to check where you are in relation to your academic potential. This is the first of three series of examinations that take place to inform and guide you leading up to your final GCSE exams.  The feedback from each of these will allow your subject teachers to personalise your Year 11 curriculum. This means we will be able to use tutor time better to meet the needs of each and every one of you in preparation for your final GCSE examinations.

Mr Teanby is the Assistant Headteacher in charge of Key Stage 4.  He can be contacted on the following:

Telephone 01945 584164 ext 254
