Challenge, Engage and Enrich

课程 Intent Statement

The broad and ambitious curriculum that St 博狗平台的 offers for all pupils prioritises engagement, challenge and enrichment.

It seeks to promote a profound and abiding sense of joy in learning, both to enrich the individual and to ensure that they, 反过来, might enrich the wider world by sharing their gifts.

All of our pupils are highly able and through our curriculum, we seek to empower all, irrespective of any barriers of challenges they may face, to cultivate and realise the highest aspirations for their futures within and beyond the school, and to embrace skills and knowledge which go above and beyond that which is usually anticipated or required at any given key stage.

Our curriculum is carefully sequenced to ensure that pupils can access new learning from a solid basis of prior learning, that learning is systematically revisited to ensure that key ideas are firmly embedded in the memory, and to enable secure and steady progress as pupils develop in age and ability.


St的课程. 博狗平台的 is built around a strong core of academic subjects and supplemented by a very wide range of co-curricular activities.

On entry to the school, students are taught in mixed ability groups and follow a broad and balanced programme. The 年7 curriculum includes Art, 设计与技术, 戏剧, 英语, 法国, 德语或西班牙语, 地理位置, 历史, 计算, 拉丁, 数学, 音乐, PE, 游戏, RS与科学. In Year 8, students are able to choose a second modern foreign language or continue with 拉丁.

At the start of Year 9 students commence their GCSE studies. Students take six and a half compulsory subjects of 数学, 英语语言, 英国文学, 生物学, 化学, Physics and short course RS; and choose a further four subjects from a group of options. 在圣. 博狗平台的, students are required to study either 地理位置 or 历史 (or both) and all students must study a language. Beyond these constraints, 然而, the students are given a free choice, with the school trying its very best to accommodate every subject combination. Some students progress to take the Additional 数学 qualification in Year 11. Every year many students apply to take the Higher Project Qualification, which provides them with the opportunity to study a non-curricular subject in depth. Non-examined courses are offered in PE and personal development.

The 六年级 curriculum is centred on A-Levels and supplemented by a varied elective programme. All students entering 一年12 will opt for at least four subjects and many opt to study Further 数学 as well.  One of the four subjects will be studied only to AS Level and will be examined in the summer of 一年12 (where an AS exam is available). Students will confirm the subject they are taking to AS Level in the first half of 一年12. 

通常, students will then continue with the remaining three subjects (or four, if studying Further 数学), into 一年13 to study at A Level, which will be examined in the summer of 一年13.  Many also apply to take the Extended Project Qualification.

No restrictions are placed on subject combinations and the school tries hard to accommodate every student's preference. Every student benefits from individual mentoring, with tutors available to support and guide each student through their 六年级 experience.
