DEPARTMENTS

Welcome to Senior School Department

At St Christopher’s, our students experience a varied, broad, balanced and stimulating curriculum which offers the opportunity for each of them to develop academically, creatively and physically.

Our academic curriculum, our strong pastoral system and our wide-ranging extra-curricular programme, aim to develop students who are Autonomous Learners, Competent Individuals and Global Citizens; students who have a love of learning, are life-long learners and are equipped with the relevant skills, knowledge and dispositions for life in the 21st century.

As students move through the Senior School, they are given more choice in the subjects they study. A wide range of subjects is studied by all students in Year 7, 8 and 9 based upon the English National Curriculum, adapted to our local context. As students move into the GCSE years in Years 10 and 11, their subject choice increases.  Post-16, we offer the choice for the students to follow either the A-level or the IB Diploma Programme, with a wide range of subjects offered in each.

These department pages will give you a flavour of the range of subjects and support and resources on offer in the Senior School.
