Curriculum Overview

Our aim is to help each and every one of our learners to achieve personal growth and academic success through the provision of a wide and varied curriculum.

At Key Stage Three we offer a broad and balanced curriculum which offers our boys the opportunity to try different things and discover their strengths and interests before they make their GCSE choices.

Key Stage 4 students follow a broad and balanced curriculum which enables them to progress to further studies or the world of work.

At Key Stage 5 traditional A Level qualifications are on offer along with a strong range of vocational diplomas and certificates in sport, performing arts and business.

You will find more information about the provision we offer students who need additional learning support and our extra provision for those who have a particular strength or talent in the arts, sport or science for example.

Bible Quote

Psalm 136:1

Word of the Week

Machiavellian (adjective)

Subject which uses this term: English Literature; Drama; History; Politics

Meaning: cunning, scheming, and unscrupulous.

For example: ‘Mrs Lyons is Machiavellian. She manipulates Mrs Johnstone into giving up her baby. She uses Mrs Johnstone’s superstitious nature to ensure she gets what she wants.’

MRS. LYONS: You do know what they say about twins, secretly parted, don’t you?

MRS. JOHNSTONE: What? What?

MRS. LYONS: They say…they say that if either twin learns that he once was a pair, that they shall both immediately die. It means, Mrs. Johnstone, that these brothers shall grow up, unaware of the other’s existence. They shall be raised apart and never, ever told what was once the truth. You won’t tell anyone about this, Mrs. Johnstone, because if you do, you will kill them."
