Academic life

Lessons at GHS promote curiosity and cultivate a love of learning.  We go beyond the curriculum, helping pupils make connections between concepts and develop their thinking.  Our teaching staff are passionate about their subjects and ensure that lessons are engaging and thought provoking.  We are an Apple distinguished school and bring technology into the classroom to support teaching.

As well as more traditional subjects, time is dedicated each week to academic enrichment.  Our younger pupils will study current affairs, oracy and undertake their own research project, Year 9 pupils will also study natural history and older pupils take part in critical thinking seminars and topical discussions. Our teaching enables pupils to develop the skills, knowledge and mindset which enable them to thrive when they complete their GHS education.
