aldridgeUTC@mediacityuk's KS4 curriculum enables students to study core GCSE subjects of English Language, English literature, maths and combined sciences. Students then opt to follow a specialist pathway of option subjects in the following specialist areas:
Creative design pathway
Level 2 Btec creative digital design, graphic design, photography
game design pathway
Level 2 Btec game design, digital technologies, computer sciences
TV & FIlm
Level 2 BTEC TV & FIlm production, GCSE FIlm Studies
The Above subjects are further supported with weekly timetabled reading and physical education studies
The curriculum is designed to provide breadth & depth in the specialist areas that build upon a strong foundation of core studies. The combination of specialist subject qualifications gives students a level of skill to a greater depth than can be experienced in a traditional option choice setting. This suite of qualifications enables students to progress through to our own specialist 6th form studies or other areas of Level 3 study.
