Whilst Sedgefield Community College must ensure that students follow the national curriculum, it still allows students to select from a range of other subjects. Students now make this selection during year 8 and begin examination courses in year 9 and complete them in year 11.
Students continue in learning pathways for years 9, 10 and 11 (key stage four). The pathway that they are placed into being determined by their academic performance in year 8.
