The Curriculum

The Curriculum

The challenges your daughter will meet at our Senior School, and the support she will receive, have a common purpose: to stimulate her growth as an individual and member of society. 

 

We'll encourage her to develop balanced study habits and cultivate a genuine passion for learning - qualities that will stand her in good stead wherever her future takes her. 

 

The first three years

We offer a broad curriculum that includes traditional subjects such as Modern and Ancient Languages, Mathematics, Humanities, Science, Arts, PE and Design Technologies. The girls also receive extensive training in computing, and our new state of the art Product Design and Computing facilities lead the way in the teaching of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) subjects.

The GCSE years

Your daughter will be able to tailor a programme of study that aligns closely with her strengths and interests. Typically, she will study ten subjects, including English, Mathematics and the Sciences as complusory subjects. To ensure a broad and balanced spread of subjects, girls then also choose from the full range of subject areas: humanities, languages, creative and technological subjects. All the options are listed below. 

Support at every stage

Our girls emerge from their time at school as well-adjusted, informed citizens of the world thanks, in part, to weekly PSHE (Personal, Social and Health Education) sessions. These help to develop our girls’ communication skills and provide vital information on health, relationships and self-care tactics, as well as broadening their political and community awareness.
