The Curriculum

Our curriculum is balanced, broad and diverse. Scholarship and academic depth are its central features.  We aim to stimulate, and challenge each student, and this is supported by careful monitoring and reporting.

Our programme fosters an environment of inclusion, excellence, participation by all and builds skills for life thus fully realising each student’s talents.
