Art & Design:

Art, craft and design express human creativity throughout history. students will engage with the culture and creativity of various nations,  be inspired and challenged to experiment, invent and create their own works of art, craft and design.


Computing has deep links with Mathematics, Science, and Design & Technology, and provides insights into both natural and artificial systems. Computing also ensures that students become digitally literate – able to use, and express themselves and develop their ideas through, information and communication technology – at a level suitable for the future workplace and as active participants in a digital world.


Through the study of History students will look at how events in the past have shaped, and continue to shape, our modern world. History helps students to understand the complexity of people’s lives, the process of change, the diversity of societies and relationships between different groups, as well as their own identity and the challenges of their time, from medieval times to the Industrial Revolution.

The History curriculum incorporates:

  • the study of key events during different time periods
  • the study of key events in globalization
  • the study of key events from different cultural perspectives


Geography is a thought-provoking and topical subject. As students’ progress, their growing knowledge about the world should help them to deepen their understanding of the interaction between physical and human processes, and of the formation and use of landscapes and environments. In our increasingly diverse society, students need to understand other people and other cultures. In this way, Geography adds to a student’s physical, intellectual, social and emotional development. In short, geography matters!

Physical Education:

P.E. offers opportunities for students to become physically confident in a way that supports their health and fitness, builds character and helps to embed values such as fairness and respect. They should develop the confidence and interest to get involved in exercise, sports and activities out of school and in later life, and understand and apply the long-term health benefits of physical activity.
