Super Curriculum

We provide students with a rich and comprehensive Super Curriculum programme – allowing students to develop a love of learning in their subjects of interest and to deepen their understanding of the curriculum.

Our Super Curriculum aims to enrich students’ learning and to support students with their application to universities.

These kinds of activities improve students’ chances of gaining entry onto highly competitive degree courses – allowing students to demonstrate a genuine love for learning and an engagement with the subject, beyond the classroom.  As well as adding to students’ general scholastic experience, the Super Curriculum deepens students’ understanding of the curriculum and it can promote leadership attributes and characteristics.
