Here at Walker Riverside Academy we offer a range of subjects that students can study at Key Stage 4. We recognise that all students are individual and therefore we strive to provide a broad and balanced curriculum.
Our students make their KS4 curriculum choices during the spring of Year 9; a change to the previous academic year. This is because we believe our KS4 curriculum is better suited to Years 10 and 11, and our students will benefit from studying our new approach to the KS3 curriculum over their first three years with us.
Below are the latest Options booklets received by our students, when our current Year 10 students selected their options in Year 8. There were three pathway options available. Click each cover below to view an example of how our Options system works and the offer that was available. Please note that subjects change year on year depending on the needs of our learners, staffing availability and timetabling.
Our Key stage 4 curriculum is currently being updated and will appear here shortly.
Please note: Departmental Curriculum statements will be updated following our Curriculum Review Day on November 29th 2019.

The subjects below are currently being studied within Academy. The choice of subjects and nature of each qualifications available changes yearly. For this reason, some subjects will not be studied by every year group.
