KS4 Curriculum Summary

Part 1 – The formal curriculum inspiring excellence in high performance engineering and business & technical events management

Students entering Year 10 at Silverstone UTC choose their focus which is either Business & Technical Events Management or High Performance Engineering.


Mathematics, English Language and English Literature are compulsory for all students, as are Physics and Chemistry.
Students then choose three options from the remaining seven subjects.
All Key Stage 4 students do core PE and PSHCE (Personal, Social, Health & Citizenship Education).

Visiting speakers, trips and the employer-led projects will build learning, interest and raise expectations.


Part 2 – Developing Business and Communication SkillsExtended_Curriculum

All our tutor groups will have a dedicated community link and they will organise and deliver and event for their community link. This will require liaison and detailed planning.

The core PE lessons are scheduled for 2 hours per fortnight, and promote a healthy and active lifestyle, encouraging participation in lifelong sport and physical activity, while also developing key life skills such as teamwork, communication and discipline.  The UTC has a 5-a-side all-weather pitch, tennis courts, and a netball, hockey and basketball multi-use games area (MUGA).  Students will engage in these and other activities including football and rugby, table tennis, dance and circuit training.

The PSHCE programme will ensure that our students are not only self-aware and very knowledgeable but also recognise the importance of the issues covered to the success of every business, locally, nationally and globally and the basics of personnel management.
