Secondary School

YEAR 9 // AGE 13–14

Our Year 9 curriculum aims at developing intellectual, creative and sporting interests.  The core subjects are complemented by a wide-ranging and balanced curriculum of a variety of different subjects.  Alongside their lessons, students have the opportunity to broaden their educational experience by participating in a range of co-curricular pursuits, sports, music, art, trips and excursions and other activities.

Year 9 students will be asked to make their I/GCSE choices in March towards the end of the Spring Term.  Before these choices are made, parents will receive our GCSE Course Outline which provides an overview of each I/GCSE subject.  For parents there will be the opportunity to discuss progress and course options.
