Leweston Senior Student in Science

Leweston delivers a broad and flexible curriculum that ensures balanced, appropriate and interesting learning opportunities for every pupil. Our lessons are engaging and challenging, encouraging the development of intellectual curiosity and a love of learning.

Each Head of Department leads a team of experienced teachers who are focused on enabling every pupil to achieve the best possible academic success. Lessons are 60 minutes in length and arranged in a two-week timetable cycle to provide flexible subject choice.

There is a strong emphasis on working hard, striving for excellence and independent learning however we believe that happy pupils are motivated pupils. Students are encouraged to take up all the opportunities that come to them because learning takes place as much outside the classroom as within it.

From Year 7 to Year 9 all pupils follow a wide-ranging curriculum studying English, Maths, Biology, Chemistry, Physics, History, Geography, Religious Studies, Computer Science, French, Spanish, Art and Design, Latin, Music, Home Economics, Music, Drama, PE and PSHE. While traditional in the rigour and range of subjects and teaching, the curriculum is considered, developed and changed to maintain its relevancy and challenge.

Pupils are placed in sets for Maths from Year 7. In Year 9 pupils are streamed according to broad ability for all subjects.

There is now GCSE preparatory work for many subjects in Year 9.
