    I'm interested, daisy - which new subjects and from where is the demand coming?

    Yes secondary. While most schools face what seems a small budget cut of 1%, that amount is significant in terms of resourcing and provisions made for subjects across the curriculum - at least it's mainly at departmental budget level that the cuts will be made. Schools are still under pressure to expand the curriculum width ways and offer a broad spectrum of subjects and courses to enable all students to achieve and with the mass advent of vocational subjects being popular ways to encompass this move, this decrease in funding is quite inhibitive of this. Vocational courses by their very nature require a different kind of resourcing - thinking photography or similar..... I'm just mulling it all and wondering who does the maths...
