Project work is an essential component both individually and in groups. There is also a range of opportunities for pupils to pursue their areas of interest in greater depth both in school and through relevant enrichment experiences beyond the classroom.
All pupils in Key Stage 3 participate in our Confident Speakers Programme, and will speak publicly at least once per year: this could be an assembly, a presentation to school visitors, or at a Parents' Forum.
Learning is supported by up-to-date technology. Every pupil is provided with a MacBook and Internet access is available throughout the school campus. Lessons incorporate technology where appropriate, and rely on more traditional media where technology does not provide a clear benefit.
Students study English, Mathematics, Science, Geography, History, Drama, Music, Art, Graphic Design, Digital Technology and PE. In addition they choose to study two Modern Foreign Languages from a choice of three.
Where appropriate, instruction is enquiry based and geared towards problem solving. Each subject is taught by a specialist in that subject.
