Academic study at the Grey House School

Academic study at The Grey House School

The evolving curriculum is compatible with the National Curriculum but not constrained by it; we believe that all children should be given the opportunity to experience the wide range of subjects on offer.

                                       

 

All pupils are taught: 

  • English
  • Maths
  • Science
  • ICT
  • Art and Design
  • Geography
  • History
  • French
  • Spanish
  • Music
  • Physical Education 
  • Religious Education

In Forms V and VI pupils are taught:

  • Latin

In the Lower School (Reception, Form I and II) most subjects are taught by the Form Teachers with PE, French, Spanish and Music being taught by specialists. In the Upper School an increased amount of specialist subject teaching takes place.

Pupils are prepared for entrance to selective Senior Schools. The examinations take place in the Spring Term and children go on to attend many different secondary schools.
