    A concise but informative outline of each Level of study and the classes it offers.


    rose2.gif Entry level - Juniors and Assessment for all new students
    ENGLISH, MATHS (2 lessons),
    GEOGRAPHY, HISTORY, SCIENCES (2 lessons),
    FRENCH and/or SPANISH. German option by tutorial.
    These all have one homework a week, 45 mins, except English and Maths 1 hour.
    STORYTELLING and a weekly HELP support session. PHILOSOPHY & SOCIETY These do not have homework.
    French or Spanish are not compulsory but should be attempted at this age to get a "taster" of learning another language. Research shows language learning stimulates intelligence.
    Younger students 10-12 years usually stay in this group for a while. Older and more advanced students can fast track assessment from initial entry to a higher level in as little as two weeks.

    rose2.gif Intermediate level approx 13 - 14yrs. but access to this Level depends on ability not age.
    ENGLISH (2 lessons), MATHS (2 lessons), SCIENCES (2 lessons),
    GEOGRAPHY, HISTORY, FRENCH and/ or SPANISH.*
    These all have one homework a week, 1 hour each (English 1.5 hours). The student may drop a subject they particularly dislike, other than English and Maths.
    Also the weekly PHILOSOPHY & SOCIETY (required ) which does not have homework.

    rose2.gif Exam Programme approx 14 - 17yrs. but it depends very much on ability not age.
    Required ENGLISH, MATHS (2 lessons). Choice of SCIENCE (1 lesson).
    A standard Exam Programme is a choice of TWO OR MORE option subjects from:
    HISTORY, LITERATURE, BIOLOGY, CHEMISTRY, PHYSICS, IT&COMPUTERS, GEOGRAPHY, FRENCH, SPANISH.
    The choice of subjects is agreed three ways between the parents, student and the school according to the individual needs and ability of the student.. Exam subjects mostly have one 1.5 hours homework a week, except English Language and Maths is 2 hours a week each.
    Also the weekly PHILOSOPHY & SOCIETY (required ) which does not have homework.
    The Exam Programme includes comprehensive Revision materials, and a series of personal tutorials in how to handle exams. There are no extra charges but there is a booklist.
