Core Subjects


We appreciate that not everyone is a natural mathematician, but we hope that all girls will enjoy being taught in a way that meets their needs and learning styles.  The girls are set according to their abilities so that they can be challenged and supported and consequently, they all grow in confidence and learn to love the subject.  The most able mathematicians are encouraged to take a ‘fast track’ to complete an AS level qualification in addition to their GCSE in Year 11.


The English curriculum is wide and varied; encouraging a love of literature and language.  The girls enjoy debating and enter local and national competitions and develop public speaking skills by taking English Speaking Union exams.  The girls visit the theatre regularly and perform in school drama productions.  All girls take GCSEs in Language and Literature.
