We aspire for every student to reach their full potential and we expect students to share this goal. To support them, we offer a full curriculum to students in Years 7 and 8, providing tuition in core subjects such as English, maths and science, PE and a modern foreign language (either French, Spanish or German).
At the end of Year 8, students undergo an options process to choose which subjects to focus on in Year 9 when they start their GCSE studies. This process is carried out through consultation with tutors and subject teachers to determine the best path for them. In lessons students choose to work at one of five performance levels; (foundation, standard, extended, advanced or exceptional).
They will complete differing tasks according to the level at which they are working and their results are tracked and supported. Each student also has an aspirational target that they are encouraged to meet or exceed.
