Curriculum

The King Edward’s curriculum is not just about preparation for examinations – internal end of year, GCSE/IGCSE or Advanced level. We hope it’s more than that – we hope it will stretch and challenge, help pupils develop their skills and talents, and discover new ones. It’s not designed to be easy – having breadth of opportunity also means studying a lot of subjects – but it should provide an interesting and enriching experience.

The curriculum is broad in the first years and aims to encourage a range of interests.  English, Mathematics, Science, ICT and Foreign Languages feature strongly, alongside the breadth of Humanities, Drama, Art, Design & Technology, Music, and Sport. At GCSE and A level, a degree of specialisation develops but many keep their options open and combine a variety of subjects in the Arts and Sciences.

For details of the curriculum by year group see the Curriculum Overview.  You can also find detailed information regarding examinations, and revision guides.
