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.
