The Upper School
Girls in Years 10 and 11, the GCSE years, form the Upper School. A wide choice of GCSE subjects is offered, allowing girls to maintain a broad academic base for as long as possible. Flexibility is ensured as we have no set option pools: subjects are allocated each year from student choices. Our pastoral team offers girls help and advice on making the best possible subject choices, taking into account any plans for the future.
Each girl is given the time, encouragement and support that she needs to help her to rise to and enjoy the challenge of GCSE. We put together a Study Skills programme, which helps girls learn how to organise themselves efficiently, work to deadlines and produce work that is of their best. A carefully-considered programme of homework and coursework ensures that all girls are able to manage their time successfully and confidently.
Girls are encouraged to develop an independent approach to learning within a structured framework. Access to fully networked technology rooms is provided both during and outside lesson time, and girls also have the support of a continually updated, well-equipped library staffed by a professional librarian.
Life in the Upper School is busy but full of activity and excitement.
