Curriculum

Girls at Sutton High School learn with joy. We know that everyone has their own unique talents and academic strengths, and we design our curriculum to ensure that each individual girl achieves her personal best.

Learning with joy

An entirely bespoke curriculum

We deliver an entirely bespoke curriculum so that students stay motivated and retain a love of learning throughout their school career. Every girl gets her own personalised learning plan, and we use data to track academic progress meticulously, continuously refining our teaching to suit the needs of the student.

The size of our school means that teachers know and celebrate pupils as individuals. On average, there are fewer than 20 girls in each class and students have completely open choice in their option subjects at both GCSE and A-level.

Future ready

Alongside our high-achieving English, Mathematics and Science departments, we are very proud of our creative offer. Drama, Music and Art are taught to all girls in Year 7 and 8 and are popular options for GCSE and beyond. We know that in an ever-changing world, it is vital that our students develop the ability to think critically, work collaboratively and hone their imagination.

Our Computer Science, Design Technology and Science lessons take place in state-of-the-art workshops and laboratories, helping girls to develop skills that will put them first in the queue in the future jobs market. Since 2018, Sutton High girls have exhibited at the national Big Bang Fair finals with a robotic hydraulic arm, devised an app that integrates with Google Maps to help visually impaired people navigate, and appeared on BBC News with a dancing robot they designed, built and coded themselves. 

Time and space

Geography, History and Religious Studies are taught separately throughout and we provide Spanish, French, German and Latin as language options. In these subjects, and across all our teaching, we provide time and space for girls to form opinions of their own and understand their place in the world.

The teachers really know the girls - their strengths, weaknesses and the most effective ways of getting the best out of them.
