Academic Life

Saint Gregory’s curriculum encourages students to develop their talents, deepen their knowledge and become motivated, independent learners within a caring Christian pastoral setting. High expectations and excellent teaching and learning opportunities create an atmosphere that allows students to thrive. We encourage our students to think for themselves, to become creative problem solvers ready to meet the challenges of an ever-changing world.

Our curriculum and wider student experiences have been thoughtfully developed to fully prepare young people to take their place in a global community. Saint Gregory’s is at the forefront of learning, drawing on the expertise and specialisms of our many local, national and international partnerships, including schools, universities and employers to give our students unique opportunities to enhance their personal portfolio and allow them to develop important employability and entrepreneurial skills.

The Key Stage 3 curriculum offer is one that inspires and challenges. Students are introduced to a broad and balanced curriculum that will set the foundations for future study and a love of life-long learning. Educational experience extends beyond the classroom; we are committed to providing rich extra-curricular opportunities that extend learning and deepen skills.

At Key Stage 4, students choose from a range of curriculum areas and subjects. We have developed a ‘tried and tested’ provision that allows breadth and balance whilst promoting academic achievement and success. We are committed to providing our students with a choice of option subjects that matches their needs and interests.

Our Sixth Form continues to build on the outstanding academic tradition of Saint Gregory’s. We offer our sixth form students outstanding pastoral care, bespoke careers advice and inspiring post-16 learning opportunities that ensure students continue to grow and develop. We have an accomplished history of preparing young people for post-18 careers, higher level apprenticeships and higher education, including Russell Group and Oxbridge universities.

We offer a range of A Level courses, from which students can choose the combination which best matches their future aspirations.
