Lower Years

LYYear 7 and Year 8: The lower years

The curriculum promotes firm academic foundations, personal enquiry, independent study, internationalism, and social responsibility.

By focussing on learning how to learn, students are therefore equipped with the tools to navigate successfully through their GCSE courses. Both Years 7 and 8 will have the opportunity to follow an Extension Programme.

During the lower years, students will follow the full range of National Curriculum subjects; English, Drama, Mathematics, Science, Modern Foreign Languages, Art, Geography, History, Computing, Music, Physical Education, Religious Education and PSHE. Students in Year 7 are taught French, German, Spanish or Mandarin. Students will have the opportunity to study a fast track second language from Year 9 as part of the options process. All students study Biology, Chemistry and Physics as separate sciences.
