An Inspiring Curriculum

To foster the development of individual academic interests and talents, younger pupils follow a broad curriculum that exposes them to the widest possible range of subjects.

During the first year, teaching in English and mathematics is in ability-based sets. For other subjects teaching is in mixed-ability forms.

In the second year teaching in English, Latin, mathematics and science is in ability-based sets. For other subjects teaching is in mixed ability forms.

Initial placement into sets or bands is based on entrance examination results and on the school report. Any subsequent changes are based on internal examination results and on general progress. Parents are contacted prior to proposed changes.

Class sizes are small.

As they progress to GCSEs and A levels, pupils are guided through a process to select subjects that best fit individual interests and aptitudes. This is accompanied by a structured programme of careers and pastoral advice.
