Our Secondary Department builds on the world-view taught in the Primary Department, encouraging students to apply Christian principles and values to their learning in all areas of the curriculum, whether practical or academic. Our staff work hard to prepare students for GCSE examinations in a wide range of subjects. They also encourage them to be responsible, caring citizens and to serve their community through a variety of initiatives.
Sport plays an important part in school live with a broad range of options on offer from football, rugby and netball to hockey, badminton, tennis and athletics. Matches are played with other schools in the area and the annual Christian Sports Day is enjoyed by all.
Music and drama form an important part of our weekly assemblies and a highlight of the senior year is our expressive arts week where the whole senior school works together to put on a dramatic production incorporating dance, drama, art and musical offerings.
Pupil visits, including overseas trips, to support learning are built into the school year. See here for more about trips and excursions.
Secondary pupils also have the opportunity to take part in a wide variety of lunchtime clubs and activities. Our Year 9’s and 10’s have the option to participate in the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award scheme.
