Christ’s Hospital prides itself on delivering a curriculum that has both challenge and opportunity at its heart. The CH curriculum is made up of two interwoven parts, a broader curriculum which encapsulates everything outside the classroom and an academic curriculum which covers everything inside the classroom. Both complement the progress of pupils at every stage.
In Year 7 and Year 8 the focus is on a diverse academic curriculum offering the pupils an abundance and breadth of experiences. In Year 8 the pupils are challenged to deliberate, rationalise and debate the world around them. They also add a further Modern Language to their learning. In Year 9, in addition to exploring the core subjects, they select a further five subjects from the 16 available to study in more detail. In readiness for their GCSEs this is slimmed down to four optional subjects in Year 10 to allow for greater depth and exploration.
Finally, in the Sixth Form pupils choose to follow one of two academically demanding and challenging programmes either the International Baccalaureate Diploma or the newly revised A level route. Both programmes require a willingness in the face of challenge and a spirit of independence.
