Academic Programme

In the past five years, 80% of girls achieved three or more As or A*s at A level. While life for LEH girls is about more than exam results, we know they are the key that opens the doors to the universities and careers of their choice. 

Students will follow a two-year linear course and sit all of the exams that count towards their A level grades at the end of Upper Sixth. 

If you are joining us in 2018, this means you can choose four subjects to study from the beginning of Lower Sixth. At the end of the year, you'll sit internal examinations. In Upper Sixth, you can continue with either four or three subjects and take your final exams in the summer 2020. 

Currently you can choose four of the following subjects:

  • Art

  • English Literature

  • History of Art

  • Physics

  • Biology

  • French 

  • Latin

  • Politics

  • Chemistry

  • Geography

  • Mathematics

  • Product Design

  • Classical Civilisation

  • German

  • Further Mathematics

  • Psychology

  • Drama & Theatre Studies

  • Greek

  • Music

  • Spanish

  • Economics

  • History

  • Philosophy


Maths and Further Maths count as one choice, although it will result in two A levels.

We do everything we can to make sure girls get to take their first choice subjects, but very occasionally this isn't possible. We reserve the right to withdraw a subject if fewer than three students want to take a course.
