Freedom of Choice

We provide a strong, traditional academic curriculum which seeks to develop our pupils through challenging them. Experience tells us that this approach works well.

Making the right academic choices

Our principle in adopting any course is to ensure that it will provide a level of challenge which will stimulate our boys and prepare them well for higher level study. For this reason we prepare our pupils for a mix of GCSE and IGCSE qualifications.

In the Sixth Form, we prepare pupils for A-level, International A-level and Pre-U qualifications. The Pre-U is a rigorous alternative to A-levels, and is highly regarded by universities. In each subject we choose the course which will provide the best preparation for university study. 

The right choice for the individual

The range of subjects we offer is wide, and there is considerable flexibility of choice, allowing boys to develop their strengths and pursue their particular interests. For example, the passionate linguist can study as many as four languages for GCSE/IGCSE.

We currently prepare boys for public examinations in the following subjects:

Art and Design English Language Mandarin Russian
Biology Electronics Mathematics Spanish
Chemistry French Mathematics (Further)  
Classical Greek German Music  
Classical Civilisation Geography Philosophy  
Drama History Physics  
Economics Italian Politics  
English Literature Latin Religious Studies
