The beautiful thing about learning is that no one can take it away from you. B B King
Through high quality teaching and resources, we aim to provide an inspiring experience to our children and encourage them in an appreciation for life-long independent learning. A broad curriculum is on offer to pupils across Forms 9, 10 and 11 offering them a firm foundation upon which to make future educational choices. Through a challenging and enriching education, both inside and outside the classroom,our Senior pupils learn effective study skills, acquiring the habits of mind which create successful young scholars.
In Form 9 pupils study English Language and Literature, Maths, Biology, Chemistry, Physics, French, Spanish, History, Geography, Latin (or Classical Civilisation), Art, Music, Drama, and DT. Pupils commence a short course in both ICT skills and Religious Studies. They also follow a programme of PSHCE (Personal, Social, Health, Citizenship Education).
During Forms 10 and 11 pupils study for 9 or 10 GCSEs. The compulsory subjects are English Language, English Literature, Maths, Science (double or triple awards), and a Modern Foreign Language. Pupils choose their optional GCSE subjects from an additional Modern Foreign Language, History, Geography, Music, Art, Drama & Theatre Studies, Design Technology, Latin, Greek, and Classical Civilisation. In addition pupils complete the short courses in ICT skills and Religious Studies which are examined externally at the end of Form 10.
