The Secondary School curriculum is academically rigorous and enables girls to develop those significant intellectual skills that go beyond each academic discipline, to ensure they can use their knowledge in new situations and see connections between and within-subjects. Such skills are fundamental if pupils are to achieve their maximum potential and develop as independent, focused learners who are academically successful.
