Curriculum Overview

Our curriculum is designed to provide a broad and rich experience for all of our students. Years 7, 8 and 9 provide a firm platform for the next stage of education for Year 10 and 11 during which the students prepare for their GCSE examinations.

The breadth of our curriculum means that students experience linguistic, mathematical, scientific, technological, human and social, physical, aesthetic and creative education. We ensure that all students have the opportunity to learn and make progress by balancing the different subject areas across the timetable and offering choice to encourage them 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 student 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 students 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 students are constantly met.
