Younger students have the opportunity to immerse themselves in both Mandarin and an Enterprise curriculum. The triage of Mandarin, Enterprise and Mindset provide an excellent base for students when they eventually move on to work places.
From Year 7 to Year 11, girls are taught in a single sex environment. In sixth form however, the school offer an unparalleled range of curricular opportunities through a partnership with Wilmington Grammar School for Boys. The same ethos of ambitious aspirations pervades the post 16 offer and the opportunity to further stimulate the students’ intellectual curiosity alongside the opportunity to further develop their personal and social skills is a winning formula.
