 Curriculum

Our priority is to provide a curriculum which will challenge and support all our students in an 11-18, integrated, academically excellent, coeducational, all-ability college. Within each area of study, every opportunity is taken to reflect the processes of integration.

All students study English and English literature, mathematics, the sciences, technology, history, geography, art, music, drama, PE, religious studies, information technology, two modern languages. Languages currently offered in the college are French, German, Irish, and Spanish.  Latin and Russian are also available to students as additional courses.  All of these subjects are available at GCSE along with additional mathematics, business studies, computer studies, business & communication, British/Irish Sign Language and media education.  As part of the Learning for Life and Work programme, all students also study employability, personal development, citizenship and home economics.
