A broad curriculum; an exciting co-curriculum

We offer a broad curriculum that allows pupils to study a range of subjects at GCSE, but we also appreciate the need for flexibility.

Our extensive co-curricular programme widens pupils’ experience, aids their learning and gives them a great time at school.

Senior Curriculum

Senior Curriculum

We offer an extensive range of GCSE subjects combined with flexibility. So there’s triple science, combined science and double science and all the subjects you would expect from a top performing school, and some you might not such as Russian.


Academic success has to be underpinned by attention to the whole person and our pastoral care is strongly committed to this approach.
