Key Stage 3

We aim to evoke a love of learning and literature in our students at an early stage and to this end our lower school curriculum is rich and rewarding. Students will study a range of literature and media and non-fiction texts across the key stage. We enrich their experience with trips, such as the Year 7 trip to the pantomime, the Year 8 visit to the Globe Theatre and the visits by authors and poets to Year 9 classes.

Key Stage 4

Our Key Stage 4 curriculum follows the iGCSE English course, together with the AQA Certificate in English Literature and we like to enhance learning in upper school with theatre trips and performances linked to the texts studied.

Media Studies

Media Studies is chosen as an option in Key Stage 4. It is highly popular and the results are excellent. We study a range of topics which students can relate to, for example music videos, films and soap operas. Lessons are practical, enjoyable and innovative.

Enrichment

We offer a range of exciting after school enrichment activities including Debating, a Film Club and a Media Club.
