Key Stage 4

Curriculum Intent

At Fazakerley High School, we are ambitious for all of our pupils.

It is our fervent belief that the curriculum is central to preparing our young people not only for academic success, but in creating aspirational, responsible and tolerant citizens for the future.

We believe that a strong school curriculum can help address social disadvantage and has the potential to transform the local community.

Below are the concepts which inform and permeate our curriculum:


In Key Stage 4, The English Baccalaureate, which covers GCSEs in English, Maths, Science, Humanities and a Modern Foreign Language, is embedded into the curriculum.

Pupils also specialise more in subjects which interest them and stretch their abilities. They study a combination of both GCSEs and BTECs from a wide and interesting range of academic and vocational subject areas such as Engineering, Child Care, Art and Design, Sport, Business, Resistant Materials, Performing Arts, Dance, Construction, Catering, Textiles, Graphics and ICT.
