In addition students must study at least one subject from the English Baccalaureate family of subjects. These subjects include:
- Any Modern Foreign Language, we offer French, German and Spanish
- Computer Science
This can be taken from either Group 1 or 2 but if taken in Group 2 it must be taken through until the end of Year 11.
In the Spring term of Year 9, students will then go through a second options process. The purpose of this process will be for students to decide which of the Group 2 subjects they will take in Years 10 and 11. This process is very much a two way process. At HTC we believe it is vital that students are well matched to the subjects they take and staff hold a key role in ensuring that students select options in which they can be successful. Students will, therefore, only be offered subjects where they have shown good levels of motivation and effort when studying these during Year 9.
All students will take the core curriculum, which is made up of:
Students will take GCSEs in both English Language and English Literature.
More able students will have an opportunity to study higher level qualifications
Various pathways are possible, although all students will have the opportunity to gain at least two Science GCSEs, or equivalent.
Our Tutorial and Assembly Programme covers statutory requirements of PSHRCE (Personal, Social, Health, Religious and Careers Education), and Enterprise Education*. HTC promotes fundamental British values and principles which all those living in the UK should respect and support. These values are reflected in the responsibilities, rights and privileges of being British that are based on history and traditions and are protected by law, customs and expectations. There is no place in British society for extremism or intolerance.
The fundamental principles of British life that we promote at HTC include:
- The rule of law
