A choice of 22 different GCSE subjects

Years IV - V

Our outstanding GCSE results stem from our ability to deliver a motivating girl-focussed education and teaching which is of the highest quality.

Years IV - V (13-16 years) Key Stage 4

The curriculum in Years IV - V for girls aged 13 to 16 years is designed to reflect the increasing independence of learning. With 22 GCSE courses available, there is subject flexibility, encouraging each girl to develop her interests and express her individuality through a breadth of academically rigorous disciplines.

We encourage all girls to study a broad and balanced range of subjects and with twenty two GCSE courses offered there is plenty of choice. All girls study compulsory core subjects including English Language, English Literature, Mathematics and Science – either as three separate sciences or a dual award.

The majority of girls choose four additional subjects and whilst not compulsory, we advise that this includes at least one language. Additional subjects include French, Spanish, Latin, Classical Greek, Further Mathematics, Geography, History, Religious Studies, Classical Civilisation, Business, Physical Education, Art and Design, Art Textiles, Drama, Music, Food Nutrition and Preparation.
