The English Baccalaureate is not a qualification in itself but it recognises pupils who have secured a GCSE at a grade 5 or better across a core of academic subjects – English, mathematics, history or geography, the sciences and a language. The English Baccalaureate is intended to give pupils greater opportunity to study in and beyond the vital core of English, mathematics and the sciences.

The subjects included in the EBacc are designed to ensure that all students have the opportunity to study a broad core of subjects, ensuring that doors are not closed off to them in terms of future progression. For example, for pupils hoping to go to university, The Russell Group guide on making informed choices for post-16 education identifies ‘facilitating subjects’ at A-Level. “Facilitating subjects” are the subjects most likely to be required or preferred for entry to degree courses and ones that will keep the most options open. The subjects they identify are those included in the English Baccalaureate. In view of this, the Academy feels that it is important to encourage students to pursue the EBacc.
