The Curriculum

For us, education, like life itself, is about much more than the academic; students need to leave school with a range of knowledge and skills.  Our duty is to identify the individual’s strengths and then help foster their passion for those activities, be they in the classroom, drama studio, CCF or on the sports field.

A wide range of 18 subjects at Key Stage 3 (Years 8-10) gives students the opportunity to develop their talents and study a broad and balanced curriculum.  

In Year 11 they can choose from 26 subjects at GCSE Level.  The curriculum broadens slightly further at A Level with 27 subjects offered. The key in all of the decisions pupils make about the courses they study is that they should be well informed – our Career Advisory Department is exemplary and thoroughly supports our pupils in their subject and/or career choice. 

GCSE Subject choices – Years 11 & 12

All pupils undertake the core subjects of English, Mathematics, and Science and then a structured choice is available to each student according to their interests and ability in consultation with staff.
