Upper School

At Key Stage 3 we build on learning from Key Stage 2, and continue to teach many subjects through a themed approach. Full use is made of the specialised teaching areas: food technology; science; music; fitness suite; the dance/drama studio; sports hall; the pool and ICT suite.

At Key Stage 4 and in the 6th Form, our emphasis is on a broad and enriching curriculum, leading to external accreditation. Pupils’ interests and strengths are reflected in the curriculum we offer, for example the Trinity Guildhall Arts Award and Media Studies.

There are increasing opportunities for our pupils to take part in enterprise education and work experience. Strong links are in place with post-school providers and pupils in the 6th Form are usually able to take part in a link placement to their chosen college or further education establishment.

As in the Lower School, our Upper School curriculum strongly advocates a healthy lifestyle. Pupils are able to put this  into practice through healthy eating choices, sport and leisure options and specialist subjects, such as hair and beauty therapy, hospitality and catering and environmental learning.
