Some of these subject areas may be unfamiliar to parents and during the year we hold 'curriculum' evenings when you will be invited to experience the same learning opportunities as your son/daughter.  Subject staff are available to answer questions in an effort to provide you with a full picture of what happens in the classroom. These evenings have proved very popular with parents with a few surprises about how teaching has changed for the better!

Years Eight and Nine
The time given to subjects changes slightly from that allocated in Year 7 due to a variety of pressures on the Curriculum.  The use of setting and banding arrangements for teaching classes in a number of subject areas increases.
