Key Stage 3 Curriculum – Lower School

A broad and balanced curriculum is offered to all of our students: underpinned by the academic core of subjects (English, Maths, Science, Humanities and Languages), learning is enhanced by the study of the Arts, computing, technology and physical education, offering our students a course of study in which academic rigour fully prepares them for further education and university.

Lower School Students (Years 7,8 &9) study English, Mathematics, Science, the Arts (Art, Dance, Drama and Music), Humanities (History, Geography, Religious Education), a Modern Foreign Language (French or Spanish), Design Technology, ICT and Physical Education as well as PSHCE (Personal, Social, Health and Citizenship Education). Many students take GCSEs early which increases their motivation and self-belief.

Through our program of assemblies and PSHE we explicitly teach the fundamental British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs.
