Curriculum Structure

Year 7 students, in September 2013, will be set on their arrival using information available from Year 6.

In general, students in the Grammar band should be aiming for A*-A (9-7) at GCSE; in the Upper band students should be aiming for A*-B (9-6) and in the Intermediate band students should be aiming for A*-C (9-4).  

Please note that GCSEs are currently undergoing radical changes. Students in Years 7, 8 and 9 will be completing qualifications which are graded 1-9 (8 being equivalent to A*).
