Welcome to Key Stage 4 at Exmouth Community College. There are around 900 students within the Key Stage. The ethos of Key Stage 4 is to care for each individual student and encourage them to reach their full potential both academically and personally.
The Key Stage 4 team are dedicated to ensuring all students are supported and able to achieve at all levels. In recent years, the College pass rate at GCSE has moved forward dramatically with Year 11 gaining 70% 5 or more A* to C grades in August 2011. In addition, students also achieved 59% 5 or more A* to C grades including English and Maths in August 2010, placing us above the national average.
We have an outstanding Study Centre, a unique resource at the College. Staffed by experienced and dedicated individuals, the Study Centre provides individual support both academically and pastorally. We have an outstanding Raising Achievement programme which works in conjunction with the excellent work of departments and individual teachers.
We offer additional classes throughout the year, with Saturday morning 'Aim Higher' sessions during the spring term and four days of revision during Easter in addition to the two days during the summer half term holiday. We are committed to inclusion, working closely with Careers South West and offering both academic and vocational based courses.
The Key Stage 4 team work very closely with the Post 16 team and we work jointly to undertake individual coursing interviews for all Year 11 students, ensuring students make an informed choice about their future.
For the first time in 2012, the College has organised a Careers Fair, attracting nearly fifty organisations on Wednesday 25th April. We are also working with the Princes Trust for the first time this year, running the XL Club with a small group of our Year 11 students. We continue at Key Stage 4 to offer the popular Community Cadets to Year 10 students, a project unique to our College.
We expect high standards of behaviour in order for students to achieve well. We hope you find the information in the Key Stage 4 area informative.
