At The Minster School we do not insist that students study all the subjects in the EBacc although many students choose to do so. In addition to the compulsory subjects, this requires students to select History or Geography as one of their options.
The school will identify particular students for whom a more guided set of options are more appropriate. Certain options subjects suit different types of learners so the range of options available is slightly reduced to help them to succeed.
More practical elements of learning suit some students, along with the development of specific life skills and additional literacy and numeracy. These elements of the supported pathway sit alongside a suite of GCSE qualifications with two choices for a subject area of interest from a selection most likely to lead to success.
