The school curriculum is geared towards preparing pupils for Common Entrance and Scholarship exams at 13+.
We endeavour to provide as broad a curriculum as possible embracing the key examinable subjects (English, Maths, Science, French, Latin, History, Geography and RS) whilst stretching the pupils' creative and practical horizons through timetabled Art & Design, Drama, Music, PE, ICT and PSHE. The children are taught in groups of no more than 18 pupils in bright, well-equipped and fully networked classrooms. Most teachers now use interactive whiteboard technology in their teaching.
We aim to get the very best out of all the children, whatever their ability and the school has an enviable record of success at Common Entrance and scholarship levels. There is a thriving Learning Support Department for those who need an extra bit of specialist help whilst a dedicated scholarship class in the last two years ensures that the very bright pupils are given every chance to fulfil their ambitions.
The curriculum is supported by an array of extra-curricular activities including history and geography field trips, a Year 7 week in France, and regular trips to the theatre, ballet, museums, art galleries and places of cultural interest.
