Curriculum in Senior School

Combining the traditional with the progressive

EHS is a selective school where standards and achievements are high. We provide a broad, balanced and flexible curriculum which takes account of government National Curriculum requirements but moves beyond them.

The curriculum at every level of the senior school combines the traditional with the progressive: Biology, Chemistry and Physics are taught as separate sciences from Year 7, for instance, and Latin is taught throughout the school - but there is also Learning to Learn in Year 7, Dance GCSE, PE as an examination subject at GCSE and A Level, and A Level courses in Theatre Studies, Psychology, Economics and Business Studies as well as a Sixth Form course in Thinking Skills.
