the Curriculum

The curriculum is enhanced for all girls throughout the year with a well balanced programme of school visits and workshops. Girls are given the opportunity to participate in national competitions and sporting events, and regular visits to the school allotment are also used to extend the girls' studies in a variety of subjects.

As the girls get older they begin to travel further afield for their school visits with the opportunity for residential visits. In Year 4, the girls can experience the outdoor activities on offer at Boreatton Park, the PGL adventure centre.

Next comes the opportunity for residential visits. Girls in Year 5 spend a week at the Cranedale Field Studies Centre, in Yorkshire, to extend their Science and Geography skills. France is the destination for the Year 6 girls who have the chance to study French culture and some adventure activities. 

Back at school, the Year 6 Summer Term curriculum also includes a programme of enrichment activities to extend the girls’ skills and interests further.  This follows the Year 6 annual musical production featuring all of the girls and providing a lasting set of shared memories.
