Curriculum

We are extremely proud of the broad and balanced curriculum we offer to all of our students. We aim to challenge all of our students and to help them make the best progress possible. Our curriculum is designed to provide appropriate challenge to all students and foster an enjoyment of learning.

Our curriculum is structured around a two week timetable with each day consisting of five one-hour lessons. Each school day begins with a 25 minute tutorial session with every student having a personal tutor to provide academic and personal development support.
