In Key Stage 3, students are taught National Curriculum subjects, as well as studying the Spanish language and humanities. They also choose to study another foreign language, either French or German, in Year 7. In Key Stage 4, we prepare them for the IGCSE examinations in a wide range of subjects which includes options such as business studies, art and design, computer studies, physical education, history and geography. In addition, there is a personal, health and social education programme throughout the secondary school.
During the final two years (Sixth Form), pupils follow Advanced Level courses in their chosen subjects. Pupils are advised personally by the teachers and tutors in order to provide the most appropriate curriculum for them.
The usual recommendation is that they study five subjects, including Spanish, taking into account their abilities, potential, interests and career aspirations. There is a complementary programme of Spanish studies, focusing on preparation for Spanish University.
In the Sixth Form, we help our students to assume responsibility for their own learning, to take a disciplined approach to their work, and to make a contribution to the community. We provide a clear framework within which they can develop both as students and individuals.
Throughout the secondary school and the Sixth Form, there are clear codes of conduct, based on respect for fellow pupils, staff, property and the environment. Above all, we aim to foster tolerance, respect and understanding.
