The Year 8 curriculum has been tailored in order to meet the needs of all pupils following the formal requirements of the National Curriculum. The curriculum is designed to ensure that our pupils progress well from the lower school curriculum. Therefore, providing a sequential build-up of knowledge in preparation for the 14-16 curriculum and pupils selecting their personalised timetables based on their options. The Year 8 curriculum consists of all core and non-core subjects ensuring pupils have access to a broad and balanced curriculum.


Classes are grouped as follows:

Ascot, St Andrews, Olympia, Henley, Twickenham and Wimbledon

The 14-16 curriculum (Year 9 – 11) is designed to be flexible enough to meet the individual needs of all learners. We ensure this is carried out by the following:

The curriculum is person centred in that all pupils have a bespoke timetable and are offered considerable choice during the planning stage. A range of qualifications are offered and targeted at appropriate levels to include all pupils regardless of ability. The range of qualifications on offer and the number of partners involved in their delivery serves to engage as many pupils as possible both in terms of accredited qualifications and enrichment activities. All pupils have the opportunity to progress through the curriculum and be supported towards achieving established goals.

Pupils from Year 9 to 11 have to undertake the core subjects which are English, Maths, Science, Humanities, PSD and RSE, however they have an Options evening every year where they can decide on non-core topics that they would like to study for the next academic year.
