Our curriculum places the personalised learning experience of our girls at its heart. Our small class sizes allow every girl to gain the individual attention and support of excellent teachers.
Progression to the Senior School signals a move to a new key stage and added depth to our curriculum. Those who have studied in our Junior School are particularly well placed by having developed the independent learning and organisational skills necessary to succeed at the highest level from Year 7 through to Year 11. A smooth transition is helped by a strong familiarity with our teachers and small class sizes enable us to plan and deliver a curriculum which stretches our pupils in keeping with their own goals and ambitions and our warm ethos.
The girls in Year 7 to Year 9 follow a tailored programme in the following subjects:
