Senior 11-16

The transition to secondary school is an important time in your school career – it’s a big leap. We work with you to make the move as smooth as possible. Resilience, confidence and responsibility are all nurtured in you from the beginning.

Our curriculum is wide-ranging, including (for example) Art, Design & Technology, Drama, Media Studies, Music, Modern Languages, Latin and Physical Education at GCSE. There may be some setting (grouping pupils by aptitude) in Mathematics in Year 7 and it is introduced in full in Year 8. Setting is subsequently introduced in Science.

It is our job to help you succeed, to help you identify your own unique potential and give you the best possible passport to what happens next.
