Our Senior Curriculum

We aim to inspire intellectual curiosity through a liberal curriculum which incorporates a range of disciplines and life skills that equip our students to play active parts in society.

This is an approach valued by universities and employers alike. The range of academic subjects we offer for GCSE is broad, and teaching staff are experts in their specialist disciplines. The academic curriculum is supplemented by lessons in Physical Education, Games and a comprehensive course in Wellbeing. We strongly encourage students to involve themselves with our extensive extra-curricular programme, as participation lends both breadth and depth to the student experience and is of vital importance in developing wider personal skills and attributes.

Students are asked to choose a pathway of either eight, nine or ten GCSE options. The majority of students will select ten subjects, but some might be better suited to choosing slightly fewer subjects in order to achieve higher grades across all of them; this will enhance their chances of success at subsequent stages of their education. We help and guide students about their choices in the Spring term of Year 9 through an assembly, parents’ evening and virtual options evening.

Lego Club, Judo, Chess Club to Gardening – there is something for everyone to try.
