Introduction from the Head of the Senior School
Accelerating towards maturity
Pupils enter the Senior School in Year 9, although they will have been following a senior school curriculum since the start of Year 7. This is both an exciting and increasingly serious phase as pupils’ development, emotionally and academically, accelerates quickly towards maturity. This phase incorporates the development of skills to successfully pass public exams, embrace university life and make career choices. We work to prepare each pupil to meet these objectives to the best of his or her ability. Meanwhile, there continues to be a wide range of opportunities outside of the classroom and a variety of pastoral support to help pupils tackle the challenges of teenage life.
