Pupils also have the opportunity to study Latin and British Sign Language.

Computing

Our computing curriculum equips pupils to use computational thinking and creativity to understand and change the world. It has deep links with mathematics, science and Creative Arts, and provides insights into both natural and artificial systems.

Computing also ensures that pupils become digitally literate at a level suitable for the future workplace. Through computing, we ensure pupils learn digital safety and be responsible computer users.

Creative Arts

Art, Design and Technology are largely practical subjects where pupils develop their knowledge through hands-on activities. There is a wide range of Create Arts offered as timetabled lesson as as well as during Prep Enrichment time.

English

The English curriculum is driven by a strong focus on literary heritage texts, in addition to high quality modern novels, poems and drama texts. We also devote a large amount of curriculum time to reading, writing skills, grammar basics and oracy.

Geography

Students develop knowledge of locations, places, processes, environments and different scales. They are able to use a variety of geographical skills and techniques to investigate questions and issues. 

History

Pupils study events, individuals and time. They learn to apply knowledge and understanding to interpret, analyse and evaluate historical sources and interpretations.

Languages

All pupils study a language in Year 7 (French or Spanish depending on year of entry). We also offer Latin and British Sign Language during Prep.

All EAL pupils are given the opportunity to study their first language during Prep.

Oracy is a strong focus of language lessons, to develop our pupils’ confidence and social skills. There is a strong cross-curricular links between English, Drama and Languages. There is also strong links with History and elements of SMSC and delivery of British Values.

Mathematics

Logic forms the backbone of the mathematics curriculum and a strong emphasis is placed on ratio and proportion, algebra, mental mathematics and problem solving. Although, we ensure that pupils are skilled in scientific calculator use, they are encouraged to use mental arithmetic strategies first.

PE

Health and wellbeing are essential to the development of young people.We use PE to create fit and healthy pupils. We offer a unique programme of sports to our pupils which enables them to specialize in an area they are passionate in.

All pupils are expected to gain a sports qualification by the end of their KS4 studies.

Performing Arts

Music and Drama improve pupils’ confidence, communication skills and nurture their creativity.

In Drama pupils develop skills in devising, performance and appreciation; learning how to create plays building on drama techniques for performance.

In Music pupils develop staying in time, performing in groups (including singing), manipulating musical elements, and aural recognition of elements. They also study composing patterns/motifs, following set patterns and rhythmic accuracy. Pupils are also offered musical tuition and graded exams.

Prep includes Catch-up Classes, Extension Classes, Reading Support, Latin, British Sign Language, Homework and Enrichment.

PSHE (Personal, Social and Health Education)

We develop pupils’ spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development and prepare them for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of life.

We provide opportunities for our pupils to get involved in our community through taking part in charity work, voluntary work and other local events.

Reading

Our aim is to ensure that every child loves reading for pleasure. Pupils are expected to read widely and diversely; novels, poems, plays, modern texts, older works, English writers and foreign writers. Pupils are encouraged to broaden their horizons through listening to the music, looking at the art, thinking about the politics and the morality that give context to the literature they are exploring. 

Science

A strong emphasis is placed on problem solving and investigatory techniques in Science which helps form a strong foundation of study for pupils going into Key Stage 4 and Key Stage 5. Hence, opportunities for pupils to complete practical work is incorporated into schemes of work.
