Curriculum Modern and Inspiring

Our broad curriculum provides continuity and progression and the wide range of subjects studied allows students to keep their options open and enjoy more choice for Sixth Form study. We monitor developments in university courses and requirements and adapt when necessary to ensure that our students follow subjects and specifications that best prepare them for the next stage of education. At Sixth Form we offer a choice of A Level or IB and many A Level students undertake the Extended Project Qualification.

In Year 7 all students study Mandarin and one European language chosen from French, Spanish and German. In Year 8, students may either continue with both Year 7 languages (Mandarin + European language), or choose a second European language (French, German or Spanish) to study alongside their Year 7 European language. The latter option means they would no longer study Mandarin.

In Year 9, students may either study Gratin (Greek with Latin), Latin or Classical Civilisation.

MIDDLE SCHOOL CURRICULUM

At the end of Year 9 students choose their GCSE subjects. The core curriculum consists of English Language, English Literature, Mathematics, Triple Award Science (Physics, Chemistry and Biology), and a Modern Foreign Language (French, German, Spanish, Italian or Mandarin)

Students then choose three subjects from the following:
