How to find us

Curriculum and assessment

We aim for our curriculum in all years to be varied, absorbing and accessible. We see exams not as an insurmountable obstacle but a challenge and an opportunity to put all learning to use. Our lessons are based around dialogue and debate, with preparation and reading being done at home and outside the classroom. This flipped classroom learning ensures that all students are comfortable expressing their views in discussion and gain the confidence to form their own opinions from an early age. Subject teachers are well-practised in setting a pace which works for everyone - nobody will be left behind.

Our love of learning is central to the School; the fizz and energy which pervades all classrooms is a special part of our atmosphere.
