Curriculum

The Secondary Curriculum

We offer a broad, balanced curriculum throughout Key Stages 3 & 4, and provide as great a degree of choice as possible . Our intention is to fulfil all the requirements of the National Curriculum and beyond, and to cater for the needs of students of all abilities.

In Years 7 and 8, students follow a broad, common curriculum. In Years 9, 10 and 11 students follow the core curriculum and then choose additional subjects retaining a broad balance in their curriculum, whilst allowing specialisation to occur when appropriate. The vast majority of students are entered for ten GCSE examinations including Religious Studies.

In Years 12 and 13 we offer both vocational and A level courses. A curriculum enrichment programme, including P.E., is followed, standards are high and students are expected to be committed to their studies.

 Full details of the courses offered by the various departments will be available on the website and by  contacting the appropriate Head of Faculty or Department.
