At Box Hill School, we treat every pupil as an individual, in every aspect of life. A combination of close attention, personalised learning, support, regular assessment and monitoring underpins the school’s academic tradition. The academic curriculum at Box Hill School is carefully planned to ensure that a breadth and balance of subjects are studied throughout the lower and middle school. Courses are constructed to suit the aspirations, abilities and interests of all our students.
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.
