Exposure and engagement in a variety of subjects at the age of 11-13, gives a student an indispensable intellectual toolkit. Subject-based syllabuses allow for much more than the transmission of knowledge necessary for further study or work, they promote meaningful engagement in real problems and help develop high-level skills that students can apply in unfamiliar situations. Using the discipline and approach of an individual subject, thinking about the world can be rigorous and demanding. The world looks very different to a biologist than it does to a historian. The same world looks even more exciting if you can look at it from a range of perspectives. We aim to encourage creativity, provoke reflection and promote joined-up thinking in our students.
