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.
