Core subjects

The core subjects of English, Maths and Science are taught throughout all Key Stages.  English Language & Literature are taught as separate subjects for GCSE and the three subjects of Biology, Chemistry and Physics are taught separately.  At Key Stage 5 all three sciences are taught separately. The Maths Department offer A levels in Maths and Further Maths as well as a Core Maths qualification.  The English Department offer A levels in English Literature and English Language & Literature.

All subjects are taught by specialist teachers consisting of a Head of Department and subject specific teachers.

Each department benefits from a programme of enrichment.  This can take the form of trips and excursions, subject specific focus days and activities, and visits from science experts during Science Week.

At Key Stage 3 students are put into ability groups for Maths from Year 7, Science from Year 8 and English from Year 9.  English classes in Year 7 spend one lesson a fortnight in our Library.

Further information regarding individual subject content at Key Stage 4 is available in the Options Booklet.
