Key Stage 3: 11 to 14 years
In the first year of the Senior School, we introduce students to a broad and stimulating programme: the curriculum comprises English, Mathematics, Science, French, German, Geography, History, Religious Education, Art, Drama, Music, PE and Technologies which include Computing, Design & Technology, Food Technology and Art Textiles. In addition, students have a Form period, attend Chapel once a week and have a Personal Learning and Thinking Skills lesson once a week (in Year 7 only). GCSE Dance is available to students from Year 9 upwards. Many students further enrich their studies with extracurricular Music and Speech & Drama lessons. A full programme of sports practices and fixtures also enhances the Games programme.
The curriculum in Year 8 is similar but with Biology, Chemistry and Physics taught separately by highly qualified specialist staff.
