Senior School (Years 7 to 11)
It is anticipated that those who join us prior to Year 7 will, in the vast majority of cases, remain until at least age 13. More will join in Year 7, at age 11, with the clear intention to continue to age 16.
Year 7 is an important year where our pupils make the transition into Senior School. Small changes to the school uniform, for example, differentiate these pupils from the younger years.
Year 9 signals the beginning of key stage 4 and is a broad and balanced foundation year for courses to be followed up to age 16. Moving on up the school, pupils are given more responsibility, with one Year 11 pupil being made School Captain and all year 10 and 11 taking roles as prefects. As prefects, pupils have reading buddies in Pre-Prep and take on break and lunchtime duties and librarian roles. Prefects also lead charity initiatives and environmental projects.
We will be offering an exciting new curriculum for students entering Year 10 in September 2022. Alongside the five core GCSEs, there will be four option choices from a mixture of GCSEs and BTEC (Level 2 GCSE-equivalent) courses.
