Lessons and preparation for lessons

Students will enjoy a broad curriculum which will prepare them for examinations and for later life.

Students will learn to study, to read effectively, to synthesise information from reading, to recall information, to write well and to explain their thinking. They will learn to manipulate numbers quickly and accurately.
 
Early in year seven the priority will be to be able to read well. Students who cannot read well will be taught to do so, so that they catch up quickly.
 
Timetabled lessons

In year seven students will have 14 lessons of just less than two hours each. 

The typical week of a year seven student will include;

2 lessons per week of

  • English
  • Maths
  • Science
  • Languages (Spanish, Mandarin or Latin)

plus 1 lesson per week of

  • Physical Education or sports
  • History
  • Geography
  • Religious Education or Philosophy and Ethics

plus 1 lesson per week of

  • art in term one
  • dance in term two
  • product design in term three
plus 1 lesson per week of
  • prep

Preparing for lessons (prep)

In addition to these timetabled lessons, students will be expected to study independently to    

  • read and summarise information from articles issued to them in advance
  • learn subject terms, definitions and vocabulary
  • read and analyse poetry
  • read a selection of novels
  • practise maths and logic problems
  • carry out from time to time various challenges such as raise money for charity or organise an event for the local community

Students will be taught how to study independently and coached through some of these tasks during their prep lessons
