In the Lower School, the focus is on delivering a broad and diverse curriculum, which is engaging and inspiring for all our students.

Subjects Taught
Art Biology
Chemistry Physics
Music Computer Science
Design Technology Drama
English French
Spanish Geography
History Mathematics
Physical Education (including Dance) and PSHE in class groups by subject specialists.

Students are set by general ability for most subjects with further specific setting in English, Mathematics and Languages. Additionally, in Year 9 Science is also set according to ability and the disciplines are taught separately. To help with the learning of languages, additional literacy support is provided for small groups of students where a specific need has been identified through our Learning Support team.

Each year group is overseen by a Head of Year who is responsible for managing their academic progress and who is supported by a team of tutors. When it comes to making choices about GCSE subjects, we work closely with students and parents to provide comprehensive support and guidance.
