Key Stage 4


Year 10 and 11 (Key Stage 4) preparations for IGCSE/GCSE examinations take place.Students study a group of obligatory subjects for examination in Year 11 and must choose one subject from each option block listed below:


  • English Language

  • Mathematics

Students who are preparing to take the Extended Level in Maths must sit the Core Level in November of Year 11 to gain a C grade. If a student does not achieve a C grade they must change to Core Level for examination in June.

Students capable of achieving a good grade at First Language English will sit the Second Language English examination in Year 10 before taking the First Language examination in June of Year 11.

The majority of examinations sat by our students are from the prestigious University of Cambridge Examinations Board. Some subjects use The AQA Board.

The number of A* to C grades gained by students who sit their IGCSE/GCSE examinations at BST are consistently higher that those achieved by students in the UK.
