Senior: Age 11-16

Pupils enter the Senior Department at 11 years old either directly from the Prep Department or as an external entrant. 

During the first two years, all pupils are set according to ability and follow a rich and broad curriculum designed to stimulate intellect and creativity and lay down solid foundations for the Year 9 transition year, during which they make their GCSE subject choices with public examinations taken at the end of Year 11. 

To find out more about the Curriculum for Years 7 - 11 and our academic subjects, please visit our Academic Overview.

We have a limited number of places available in Years 7 and 9 and pupils should register for a Taster Day by contacting our Admissions Team.  Early booking is advised.

The Aquileon Building

The Aquileon Building

The Aquileon Building is a substantial addition to the estate, easing pressure on other parts of the School, and providing the following new facilities:

  • six new senior classrooms
  • IT Suite
  • Two double height Art Rooms
  • Photography Department
  • Performance Studio for Drama, Dance and the Performing Arts
  • Well-being Centre
  • Tutorial rooms
  • new lavatory blocks for senior boys and girls
  • staff offices

The Aquileon Building will be keyed into the existing Theatre block where a third laboratory will be established for Biology alongside the new Chemistry Laboratory and leading directly into the Mathematics Department on the first floor.  

Alongside developments in Science, Design and Technology and Sports facilities, the Aquileon Building will provide the hub for our rapidly growing Senior School.
