Year 7

Our aim is for the curriculum to allow and support every girl to thrive and achieve to their best at a pace appropriate to them. There is additional support to enable those with learning or physical difficulties as well as an advanced learner programme of study.

Mathematics, English and Science are set (either in half year or whole year groups); Design and Technology is taught in smaller groups.

Setting is determined using KS2 assessments, information from primary schools and our own assessments during the first term of the year. There is regular assessing of pupil progress and pupils may change sets as appropriate to support individual need and to achieve potential.

Pupils experience a range of languages (French, German, Spanish, Mandarin Chinese) and a broad curriculum that encompasses the core subjects of Science, Mathematics and English to Drama, Dance, Computer Science, Music and Design and Technology (Food Technology, Resistant Materials, Textiles).

Years 7 & 8

All pupils follow a common curriculum during their first two years (Key Stage 3). All students study the following subjects:

Art Computer Science Design & Technology
Drama English Geography
History Mathematics Modern Foreign Languages (MFL)
Music Personal Development (PD) Physical Education (PE)
Religious Education Science
