Curriculum

At Park House we offer a uniquely personalised curriculum, designed to meet the needs and interests of every student and ensure that they enjoy outstanding progress and achievement.

We operate a two-year Key Stage 3 (years 7 and 8) and a three-year Key Stage 4 (years 9, 10 and 11), with GCSEs starting in year 9 and with most examinations being completed at the end of year 11.

Our three-year key stage 4 allows students more time to study their chosen subjects at GCSE and provides them with the best opportunity to achieve their full potential in the core curriculum areas.

At Key Stage 5 (years 12 and 13) our Sixth Form is made up of 250 students following courses at AS and A level or a one-year access course consisting of Level 2 courses possibly combined with an AS level.
