Year 9

The Year 9 curriculum is designed to ensure that all boys are well-prepared to begin their GCSE courses. As boys conclude Year 9 we offer wide-ranging support and advice as they select their GCSE courses. 

The core curriculum studied by all boys at GCSE consists of English, English Literature, Mathematics, and Science so these subjects are compulsory. Later in Year 9 boys undertake an online activity (‘Launchpad’) which will help them to identify their strengths and skills, and make choices about subjects and possible future careers. Parents will also have access to the programme so they can support boys with their decision-making. The boys will also receive advice from their tutors regarding their options.
