The Lower School curriculum is designed to ensure a solid grounding in the core subjects, in the context of a broad range of subjects, enabling students to make informed GCSE choices. There is a big emphasis on numeracy, literacy and digital skills, as these are the foundations for success across all subject areas.
All students study the core subjects of:
- A choice of modern languages (French or Spanish)
- Design and Technology (resistant materials, graphics and food technology)
- Physical Education
- Digital learning
- Personal, Health, Social Education (PHSE)
Subjects are taught by subject specialists in small classes. In mathematics, classes are set to ensure that all students are stretched to fulfil their potential.
