Welcome to Senior School


The Senior school covers Years 10, 11, 12 and 13 (age 14-18) and falls clearly into 2 units of 2 years each. In Years 10 and 11 students follow a broad curriculum in preparation for IGCSE/GCSE examinations which are the first major public examinations in the English National curriculum. In Years 12 and 13 students follow courses to prepare them for AS and A level examinations which are the gateway to university in UK, US and Italy.

Students are encouraged to take responsibility for their learning and a maximum class size of 16 in Years 10 and 11 creates the ideal environment for a close working relationship between teacher and student. Having successfully completed Year 11 students select 4 subjects to be carried forward to AS level (5 if Italian is included).  Three of these are then carried forward to A level.  Students work in small tutorial style groups and are encouraged to develop a disciplined approach to work and keen research skills in preparation for future study at university.

Senior students are called upon to play a major role in the school community and will send elected representatives to the Academic Council. Each year a student from Year 12 will participate in the Interviewing Committee which is responsible for the  recruitment of new members of staff and a Year 13 student will give the Student Report at the school’s Annual General Meeting.
