Year 9 Subjects

Our aim at Banbury Academy is to provide all students with a broad and balanced KS4 curriculum tailored to the individual’s needs and with a range of possibilities and opportunities post-16. Since the National Curriculum continues until the end of year 11, some of what is studied at Key Stage 4 is compulsory with the remainder of the KS4 curriculum as option choices as detailed in the Guided Choices Booklet below.
