Academic Curriculum

Curriculum Intent

We aim to provide an ambitious, innovative and stimulating curriculum for all. High academic attainment and the development of widely-educated, confident and responsible young people are the twin aims of our curriculum. It is tailored to be academically challenging for our able cohorts of students, the vast majority of whom study A Levels before beginning university degrees or degree-level apprenticeships.  

Our students follow a balanced academic curriculum with the English Baccalaureate at its heart. We prioritise student choice to give each individual the opportunity to proceed to destinations that meet their interests and aspirations. This results in a broad curriculum and smaller examination set sizes than is typical in state schools nationally.  

Our curriculum aims to prepare students for a rapidly changing world whilst understanding and learning the best that has been thought, said and written. We promote and recognise success in a wide range of extra-curricular activities to enable students to discover and develop lifelong interests and talents. This rich set of experiences develops students’ strength of character and enables them to become empathetic, resilient and independent.
