Challenge Phase

Our Challenge Phase covers our GCSE curriculum. Students will study GCSE for 2 - 3 years before taking examinations. They then progress to Further Education at the Academy, another FE College or through apprenticeships.

Students begin this phase of GCSE study when they are ready. The Challenge curriculum at Route 39 Academy is designed to open doors and prepare students for the next level of study, no matter what they wish to do. Students will follow the new 'Progress 8' measure and 'English Baccalaureate'.
