Forms IV, V & VI
"Pupils demonstrate an excellent foundation of knowledge and a detailed understanding of a broad set of concepts in core subjects"
- ISI Inspection Report 2015
In Forms IV, V and VI (Years 6, 7 and 8), children are taught exclusively by subject specialist teachers and make extensive use of the School’s facilities including the Computing Labs, Science Lab and the Art & Design Centre.
The curriculum includes English, Maths, Science, French, Latin, Geography, History, Religious Studies, Design Technology, Computing, PSHE, Music, Art, Drama, PE & Games. Wherever possible we forge cross-curricular links to consolidate children's learning.
In Forms V and VI (Years 7 and 8), we introduce setting in the core subjects of English, Maths, French and Latin to ensure that children are appropriately prepared for their Common Entrance and, in many cases, Scholarship examinations.
Outside the classroom, there are plenty of opportunities for children to develop their individual talents and gain confidence with regular assemblies, music and drama productions and a wide range of sporting activities.
The children also enjoy an exciting programme of trips to complement their education including a residential Classics trip to Bath in Form IV (Year 6) and a week-long French language immersion trip to Normandy in Form V (Year 7). In Form VI (Year 8), there is a Geography field trip to Dorset and the annual post-exam outward bound expedition to the Brecon Beacons.
