      Academic Overview

      Sutton High School provides a learning environment in which every pupil is seen as an individual and through a personalised programme of support and guidance is encouraged to work towards ambitious academic targets.

      In Years 7-9, the core National Curriculum is enriched by a study of two modern languages, Latin, Computing and Design Technology (Resistant Material and Textiles). Separate Sciences are taught from an early stage in the girls' school careers. Every year, our pupils achieve well beyond the National Curriculum Levels predicted in MidYIS baseline ability tests taken in Year 7.

      In Years 10 and 11, girls normally study ten subjects to examination level. Increasingly, our pupils are studying the academically more rigorous International GCSE qualifications, particularly in the core subjects of Mathematics, English and Science.  In addition we have introduced IGCSE Computer Science into the curriculum. Every girl takes at least one modern language from a choice of French, German and Spanish and the study of three separate sciences is a particularly popular choice, alongside History, Geography, Religious Studies and Latin. Practical and artistic subjects are also popular and pupils are able to choose from Art, Design Technology, Drama, Music and Physical Education.
