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.
