In Years 7 and 8 pupils at The Royal School Wolverhampton study a broad range of subjects which start with the National Curriculum, but go well beyond in depth and breadth.
In KS3 pupils have lessons in English Language and Literature, Mathematics, German or Spanish and French, History, Religious Studies, Geography, Science, Physical Education, Art and Design, Music, Design and Technology, Computer Science and Home Economics.
During Year 8, pupils are invited to select four options to study in Year 9 alongside the core compulsory GCSE subjects of English, Mathematics and Science. Every child receives individual support in the decision-making process with an options evening, opportunities to meet with subject teachers and a further parents' evening early in the spring term. Final option choices are submitted by February half term.
In Years 9, 10 and 11 all lessons are GCSE, OCR National or BTEC level 2 courses (a three-year programme involving the compulsory subjects of English, Mathematics and Science plus the four further options selected). Final examinations are taken towards the end of Year 11. All pupils also follow non-examination courses in Religious Studies, PSHE and PE.
