KS4 Curriculum Overview

Throughout Years 10 and 11 we offer a varied and structured curriculum with a focus on individuals achieving their very best in GCSE or equivalent subjects.  Students mainly concentrate on Maths, English and Science but this is supplemented by other subjects appropriate to the particular learner.  The programmes studied are bespoke in order to get the most from all.

We always attempt to develop previously studied courses with KS4 students who come to us part way through an academic year but we cannot guarantee to match the programmes that they have previously been on.

Our current Curriculum offer contains:

  • GCSE Maths
  • GCSE English
  • GCSE Literature
  • GCSE Science
  • GCSE Art
  • GCSE Health & Social Care
  • GCSE Childcare
  • GCSE History
  • GCSE Physical Education
  • GCSE Catering
  • V CERT NCFE Health and Fitness
  • Level 2 ICT
  • NCFE Levels 1/2 Food

V CERT NCFE Health and Fitness

At Rise Carr College, we offer students in Key Stage 4 the opportunity to gain a qualification in Health and Fitness Level 2. The qualification is equivalent to a GCSE, where students can achieve a Pass, Merit or Distinction.

The course consists of four units. Each unit is worth 25% of the course total. Units 1, 2 and 4 are portfolio based, where learners will present evidence that meet the assessment criteria which is internally assessed. The final unit is an externally assessed exam.

Unit 1 focuses on components of fitness, fitness testing, training methods and the body systems.

Unit 2 develops the understanding of diet, lifestyle choices and motivation in sport.

Unit 3 is the externally assessed exam, where students will take on the role of a fitness instructor.

Unit 4 allows the students to plan, carry out and evaluate their own personal exercise programme.

Extra-Curricular Activities

Alongside their curricular studies students get the opportunity to go to Boot Camp at a local gym alongside various other outdoor activities.  These are aimed at developing the young person as a whole as well as academically.
