Junior Academic Courses
Lower School pupils aged 11-14 spend afternoons learning academic subjects in line with the National Curriculum, including:
- English Literature and Language
- Religious Studies
- Information Technology
- Personal, Social and Health Education (PSHE)
There is a supervised prep session for junior pupils and there is an additional prep session on Saturday mornings. Pupils have access to School computers and to our well-stocked library.
Learning Support is provided for pupils who require extra help. Learning Support assistants are present in some lessons and there is always a support assistant available during weekday prep. Specialist Learning Support teachers give private lessons, which are rotated on the School timetable.
Each year group has an opportunity to take part in educational visits, which enhance the delivery of the curriculum.
