In year 9, pupils are divided into three groups for Mathematics, English, Science and Languages depending on each child’s aptitude and ability. For other subjects the groups are parallel and of mixed abilities.
For pupils entering year 10, the aim is to provide a wide range of courses that will meet the needs of our pupils, whatever their interests, career aims or ability.
All year 10 pupils have lessons in English (including English Literature), Double Science, and Mathematics. The rest of the subjects are divided into several option blocks from which, with advice and guidance from home and the College, pupils choose an appropriate and well-balanced course. It is worth emphasising that this is not the same as your child just choosing the subjects he or she wants to study or is interested in, but rather what is educationally sound.
