Finding Your Subject
Whilst the Middle School culminates in the taking of (I)GCSEs or GCSEs, the curriculum in the previous years is equally important. Pupils continue with a similar core to that studied in the Lower School but they can start to make more ambitious choices regarding the languages they study and their creative arts programme.
Our core curriculum retains an element of stability but a pupil at this point may wish to take on three languages, for example, or may wish to study art for a significant proportion of their timetable.
We do not start GCSE courses at this stage. Rather, we provide a curriculum that is designed to encourage pupils to find joy in their subjects.
