All subjects are allocated more time than the minimum national requirements. For the core of English, Mathematics and Science, students study four hours per week for each subject. Further, there is a particular focus on Sport (three hours), ICT and Computing and the creative subjects of Music, Drama and Art.
Students complete their GCSEs over three years from Years 9 to 11. We encourage students to follow the English Baccalaureate which provides a broad and balanced curriculum. In this programme, all students study a core curriculum of English, Mathematics, Triple Science, a Humanity (History or Geography) and Language (French and/or Spanish). In addition to the English Baccalaureate’s core curriculum subjects, students are also given the option to study another two subjects of their choice.
