The Senior School Curriculum
Lime House School is committed to providing a rigorous academic and intellectual education which will challenge and engage pupils, offer continuity and progression of learning to foster a life-long love of learning for its own sake and provide them with a secure foundation on which to continue into Higher Education and into the careers of their choice.
The senior school years from age 11-18+ are crucial in laying the foundations for later, more specialised study and form a vital bridge between primary school learning and the GCSE courses started in Year 10.
Children from Year 7 upwards are taught by specialist teachers, whose expert knowledge and superb teaching skills combine to instil a love of learning across a wide range of subjects. All pupils receive a broad introductory curriculum which gives them experience in all areas of learning. In addition to Mathematics, English and Science they study
- Religious Studies
- Home Economics
- PE and Games
- Personal, Social and Health Education.
Our senior school curriculum largely follows the programmes of study laid out in the UK National Curriculum.
