Academic Success

Academic Success

At Eaton Square, we are extremely proud to balance excellent academic results with the broader measures of success that will prepare our pupils for the future.

Value added exam results are a given at Eaton Square due to the high level of individual support and attention that is provided to all pupils. From a pupil’s first day as a member of our school community, we encourage them to be aspirational in their future goals and then we work with pupils over the course of each academic year to help every individual realise those ambitions and fulfil their potential.

We achieve this through a balanced and flexible curriculum, which encourages choice and flexibility to allow pupils to study the most appropriate combination of subjects for their ability and future aspirations.
Alongside our teaching, we provide unparalleled pastoral care and encourage a strong independent work ethic. Together, these elements give students the clear direction and wraparound support that elevates their academic performance to a higher level.

Curriculum Overview

The curriculum at Eaton Square Senior School is designed to provide a broad and rich experience for all of our pupils. Years 7, 8 and 9 provide a firm platform for the next stage of education for Year 10 and 11 during which the pupils prepare for their GCSE examinations.

The breadth of our curriculum offered means that pupils experience linguistic, mathematical, scientific, technological, human and social, physical, aesthetic and creative education. We ensure that all pupils have the opportunity to learn and make progress by balancing the different subject areas across the timetable and offering choice to encourage pupils to take subjects suited to their preference and ability.

Results are important, but the measure we are most interested in is the extent to which each pupil realises their ambitions and perceived potential. A curriculum structure which provides balance and flexibility, which supports and encourages choice and which provides appropriate subjects for different ability levels is the basis on which good results are built. Equally important are good pastoral care and a strong independent work ethic, both of which are central to what we do.

We regularly review our curriculum and welcome feedback from pupils and parents. The demands on education do not stand still and our curriculum is reviewed and developed to ensure that the changing needs of the pupils are constantly met.

So many opportunities lie in front of our children.
At a time of change, education must adapt to ensure we’re helping them access the best possible chances.
