In each of Years 7 to 9, girls study a broad curriculum. In Year 7 these subjects are: English, Mathematics, Science, French, German, Latin, History, Geography, Religious Studies, Music, Art, Drama, Design Technology and Engineering, Physical Education and Computing. In Years 8 and 9, girls study all of the same subjects as in Year 7 except Computing. Spanish is added to the curriculum in Years 8 and 9. Students are taught in form groups and are not put into sets or streams for any subjects at Key Stage 3.
There is a Consultation Evening for parents once a year for parents to discuss their daughter’s progress, which is attended by all teaching staff Parents also receive an interim report towards the end of the Autumn Term and an annual written report of academic progress, towards the end of the school year. Academic progress is monitored throughout the year and progress is reviewed with girls so that strategies for improvement and development can be discussed.
If you have any enquiries about the Curriculum, please contact Deputy Head, Mrs M Watts, via [email protected].
Girls in Years 7 to 9 (Key Stage 3) are placed into a Form Group of 26 pupils under the care of a Form Tutor. The weekly assembly and tutorial programme provides the opportunity for girls to take part in a variety of activities and, in particular, supports the pastoral team in ensuring that Year 7 successfully make the transition from primary education. Girls also generate creative and fun ideas to fundraise actively for charities. The pastoral care of the pupils and work of the Form Tutors is overseen by Heads of Year for each year group. The Heads of Year also monitor the overall progress of all girls in Years 7 to 9 and can be contacted at any time if parents have concerns or queries about their child.
