Overview

The school's curriculum is designed to:

  • be balanced, broadly based, relevant and differentiated to match student needs, aptitudes and abilities;
  • promote the spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development of each student; and
  • prepare students for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of adult life.

Students have equal opportunities to the curriculum at all key stages; where options are available, every effort is made to provide students with the options of their choice. Student progress is assessed and the results recorded and reported to parents.

Year 7: On entry our students study the full range of traditional subjects in addition to either French or German and Latin as part of an accelerated Key Stage 3.
 
Year 8: At the start of the year students choose a second language from a wide range which currently includes French, German, Spanish, Italian, Russian, Chinese and Japanese. The end of Year 8 marks the end of Key Stage 3 and final assessments are made at that point.
 
Year 9: In this year depth of study is the priority and many subjects approach this creatively. Students either continue with Latin or they may choose to study Classical Studies as an alternative. All students follow a course in Leadership.
 
Years 10 and 11: Generally all students take GCSEs in Mathematics, English Language, English Literature, Biology, Chemistry, Physics, two Language subjects and RS plus three subjects chosen from a wide range including at least one Humanity (which includes Business Studies and Economics). Some subjects are taken early if it is thought appropriate with students going on to study a more advanced course.

Years 12 to 13: From September 2017, all Year 12 students follow the International Baccalaureate Diploma. The current list of IB subjects offered can be found here.

  • Arrangements for handling complaints
