The Upper School Curriculum runs from years 9-11 and will provide appropriate and relevant learning pathways that will meet the needs and career aspirations of all pupils.

A fundamental aspect of the curriculum in this phase of the school is the prestigious Welsh Baccalaureate qualification and students will also have the opportunity to experience and study a wide range of subjects, including: English, Maths, science, Religious Education, Welsh and the Welsh Baccalaureate along with a wide range of complementary subjects in areas of humanities, social science, enterprise, creative arts, sport, wellbeing, technology and languages.

We teach all of our pupils to approach every day expecting to be surprised and excited at the new things they will learn. Good grades depend upon establishing the best work habits early on. We will build upon the development of pupils having a strong work ethic. All pupils are expected to complete classwork, homework and revision to the best of their ability and are encouraged to engage with and enjoy their learning and wider school experiences.

Young people are guided by experts through the complexities and challenges of academic life, post 16 transition, future university and employment routes. We will also ensure that pupils have an insight into the professional workplace across a wider range of sectors and employment.
