Curriculum & Learning
So what do we teach and, equally important, how does your child learn?
Learning skills are integral to our approach and in the junior years (7 to 9), class sizes of no more than 14 (about 8 in English & Maths) allow the individual attention you deserve. We follow the National Curriculum and a lot more besides: a choice of up to 21 subjects leading to GCSE or Level 2 BTEC and 17 for A-level or Level 3 BTEC; you’ll need our prospectus for the whole lot, but here’s a flavour:
|GCSE/Level 2 BTEC||A-Level/Level 3 BTEC|
|Art|| Applied Science
|Design & Technology||Business Studies|
|English||Design & Technology|
| English Literature
|Music|| Performing Arts
| Outdoor Education
| Physical Education
||Sport (PE and Outdoor Ed.)|
As you move into Year 10, your options focus on your favourite subjects and, not surprisingly, those most likely to produce the highest grades. For more on post-16 choices please click on the 6th Form.
