The Curriculum
In pursuit of the aims of the School and in line with statutory requirements, we follow the National Curriculum and enhance it with both traditionally academic and more skills-based courses.

At Key Stage 3 (Years 7 to 9) provision is broad and balanced, giving the opportunity for a diverse range of experiences and opportunities. For example, all pupils study separate sciences from Year 7 and French & German both begin in Year 7, followed by the introduction of Latin for all in Year 8.

During Key Stage 4 (Years 10 & 11) students are expected to commence 9 full subjects at GCSE. Mathematics, English Language and Literature and 3 separate sciences are the core disciplines and 3 option subjects can be chosen from Art and Design, Classical Civilisation, Computing, Design Technology, Food & Nutrition, French, Geography, German, History, Latin, Music, Physical Education and Religious Studies. Support sessions are provided by subject areas in addition to lessons. A list of these sessions can be found here Support Sessions 2018-19.

You can find more information on the GCSE subjects available by downloading our GCSE Options Booklet below. Students currently in Year 9 can make their choices on the Options Form.
