Joining Fourth Form

On joining Dean Close, all pupils in the Fourth Form study English, Mathematics, French or English as a second language, Religious Studies, Biology, Chemistry, Physics, History, Geography, Latin or Classical Civilisation, Creative Studies and PSHE.   Spanish is studied as a second Modern Language by the majority; a small number study Spanish instead of French.  Classical Greek is taken by the most academically able. 

Our Creative Studies carousel introduces pupils to a variety of artistic and creative subjects, embracing Art & Design, Drama, Food & Nutrition, Music, Physical Education and Product Design Technology.

Pupils start considering their GCSE subject options in the Lent Term of the Fourth Form, discussing their options with their Tutors in January/February, with the process completed early in the Trinity (summer) Term.
