Year 12 Teaching Blocks 2019-20

These are the teaching blocks for Year 12 2019/20 – each year the blocks change depending on what students tell us they want to do. We have other subjects that we can deliver which are not on the list as they can only run if sufficient student numbers pick them. Year 10 students should take every opportunity to share that information with staff so that the subjects and blocks reflect what the cohort want.
