          The Curriculum is designed within the framework of a 30 period week, with each period lasting 50 minutes. Select the relevant key stage below for details of subjects and period allocation.

          Lower Line (Ks3) Curriculum

          Pupils study the full range of National Curriculum subjects from Year 7 to Year 9.

           All pupils study a Modern Language. French is studied by pupils in Population 1 and Spanish by those in Population 2

          Art, Design Technology (DT), Drama and Music are taught in rotation. Pupils will study  one Arts subject (for four periods a week) at any one time. After several weeks, they will move on to the next subject. Each subject is visited twice in the course of the year (known as First Rotation and Second Rotation). Dates of rotations are listed in the College Calendar.

          The aim of rotations is to reduce the number of subjects and teachers the younger pupils needs to cope with at any one time and to consolidate teaching time so that there is not a large gap between one lesson and the next in a subject. Rotations have been very successful in improving learning and progress.

          In Year 7 pupils have 2 periods of RS and 2 periods of PE.

          Sixth Form Curriculum

          Boys in Poetry (Y12) are generally expected to take three Advanced Level courses which they will complete in Rhetoric (Y13). More able pupils are able to discuss a wider offer of courses. Pupils taking our Level 2 programme are expected to follow a full range of courses in the offer, together with Maths and English GCSE re-sits.

          In general, boys are expected to enrol on courses taught at Wimbledon College. Reasons for taking courses at the Ursuline High School may include:
          that the subject is not taught at the College
          timetable constraints mean that the subject cannot be taken at the College with other options
          the content of the course is different

          However, boys should note that priority for access to UHS courses is given to UHS students first.
          We intend to offer the following subjects at Wimbledon College and in the Sixth Form partnership with the Ursuline High School from September 2015, though subjects and specifications may change subject to numbers opting for courses and any additional changes in government requirements
