Our new building, equipment and facilities support a high-quality curriculum which will enable students to meet the needs of the highest demand qualifications at Key Stages 4.

  • French and Spanish.

Taught for three hours each, per week.

Students will also have creative and physical enrichment sessions, develop their character and PHSE knowledge, develop problem-solving skills through Project-Based Learning and take place in preparation for work session every Friday afternoon. Students in Year 9 study Philosophy and Ethics, looking in particular at the ethics of medicine through the religions of the world.
