A Key Stage 4 theme includes several features that are intended to encourage academic curiosity and an engagement with independent learning that students can use to enrich and enhance their knowledge of the world and the GCSE subjects they are studying. It also aims to widen students knowledge of the support and advice available to them.

A theme is structured into the following sections:

  • Subject success
    Subject success includes guided activities through PowerPoint slides and links to video clips and websites which engage young people in issues around aspects of each theme. Students can then guide themselves from here to materials to extend their understanding, adding a GCSE ‘subject element’ to their understanding. Finally, students can move to embed their subject knowledge by using revision quizzes that link to the subject(s) that have been covered in the theme.  
  • Our wider world
    Our wider world is about investigating opportunities to look beyond and outside school subjects. Going out suggests bespoke virtual ‘school trips’ or visits based around the theme, and students are encouraged to ‘read, watch and listen’ with links to books, films and podcasts/music which are relevant to the theme and which will enrich their cultural capital.  This section also links out to information on careers that are related to the theme.

  • Looking after yourself
    Looking after yourself is at the core of everything that the themes are designed to do. It has a focus on wellbeing with activities that aim to get students to think about how they can support themselves and each other both in the present and moving forward.
