Curriculum

All pupils in Years 7, 8 and 9 study History, Geography, Art, Drama and Music and a Modern Foreign Language. In Year 10 and 11, the students choose to continue some of these subjects to GCSE.

All pupils will be entered for public examinations at the end of Year 11.

We believe in providing young people with a challenging and stimulating learning environment. The curriculum is planned and delivered with the aim of allowing all pupils the opportunity to achieve their very best. To enable the highest quality learning to take place, some subjects are grouped according to ability and some taught in mixed ability groups.

The school provides a wide-ranging and balanced curriculum for all pupils, meeting all National Curriculum requirements.

There is a common core of subjects, studied throughout the school. For more detailed curriculum information please click on the subjects listed below.
