Introduction

We believe that it is important that our students experience a range of subjects that will prepare them fully for the challenges of the 21st century. This means that we are equally concerned in developing our students’ skills such as leadership, communication, enquiry, resilience, team work, creativity, independence and collaboration, as we are in developing academic achievement. We have therefore created a curriculum that will challenge and excite our students as well as giving them the essential skills they need for the fast changing world.

All students have access to a broad and balanced curriculum; which enables all students to develop an understanding and appreciation of the arts, technology, humanities and modern foreign language alongside the core subjects (English, maths and science) throughout Key Stage 3. Our aim is that students maintain such balance into Key Stage 4 before specialising in their chosen field of study at Key Stage 5.

As a girls’ school we challenge gender stereotypes as part of our ethos and within our curriculum. All students follow a tutorial programme that addresses personal, social, health and careers issues. In year 7 we have a bespoke learning skills session fortnightly that seeks to develop students’ need to learn and progress successfully. All students are encouraged to attend our varied enrichment activities that are offered both at lunchtime and after school.
