The curriculum at Kelvin Hall is designed to give every student the platform they need to go on to study at college or in Sixth Form, or to go into training when they leave school. We work hard to ensure that every child, whatever their ability, achieves their full potential through a broad and balanced curriculum.

Choices

Pupils complete their studies by choosing from a list of choices list to gain further GCSE qualifications, such as a Dance, Music, Photography, Sociology, Computer Science etc.
For a small number of students other curriculum provisions will be available.
These courses are challenging and develop valuable skills in communication, leadership, teamwork, problem solving, business awareness and entrepreneurship. This range of subjects not only stimulates and interests pupils during their key stage four studies, but will give them the foundation they need to make their own career or educational choices when they leave Kelvin Hall School.
