Inquiring Curriculum

This section

The National Curriculum at Key Stage 2 is the starting point for building a full and varied curriculum for Years 3 – 6.

There’s a carefully structured and full curriculum in the 'core' subjects of English, Mathematics, Science and ICT, as well as in History, Geography, French, Music, Art, Drama, R.E., Games, P.E., Swimming and Design Technology. These subjects may be taught as the Creative Curriculum, the Inquiring Curriculum or as an individual subject.

 In Years 7 and 8, it’s about working towards the Common Entrance examination, which is taken in Year 8, in English, French, Mathematics and Science.

You can download the 13+ Common Entrance syllabus for all academic subjects from the ISEB website,

The humanities are taught through our ‘11-14, Inquiring Curriculum’ and details of this can be found here.

There’s a choice between taking up Spanish or continuing with Latin.

With our excellent facilities, small classes and specialist teaching, pupils can work at a level that suits their abilities, and get all the help they need to reach their full academic potential
