Learning in the Middle School
Lower School subjects continue into Year 9, during which girls make their GCSE/IGCSE choices. Each girl takes an average of nine GCSEs/IGCSEs including the compulsory core subjects: English Language, English Literature, Mathematics and Combined Science (or three separate Science qualifications).
In addition, girls usually choose two or three subjects from the following options: Art & Design, Computer Science, Classical Civilisation, Dance, Design & Technology, Drama, Geography, History, Italian, Japanese, Latin, Music, Physical Education, Religious Studies, Spanish.
Every effort is made to keep these choices as open as possible, and girls have the opportunity to discuss their options with the subject staff, Tutors, the Head of Year, the Deputy Principal Academic and, of course, their parents.
