The City of Leicester College’s curriculum provides exceptional opportunities and can offer one of the widest and most varied choices of any school in Leicester. Although it is compulsory that students follow some ‘core’ subjects, we provide many alternative, personalised pathways for the curriculum that they choose.

In order to enable students to continue to access a broad and balanced curriculum, and to achieve their potential in those subjects, we have created a Year 9 transitional year where students begin their journey into KS4, having begun the process of selecting their option choices in Year 8.


Below are the current Year 9 courses – click on the subject links for more information.


The Core Curriculum is part of the curriculum which you must follow.
