In the senior school we deliver an innovative and broad curriculum that challenges all boys and gives them the opportunity to study the subjects that they truly enjoy, whilst developing their skills and knowledge. This ensures that all of our pupils leave with the highest level of qualification that we know they have the ability to achieve.
At the end of year 8 boys have the opportunity to pick 9 subjects to study alongside Science, Maths, English, core PE and remedial support. We advise that the boys pick those subjects that they are interested in and will enjoy studying for the entire year.
During the summer term of year 9 boys (with the support of their parents and teachers) choose 3-4 of the subjects they have been studying since September as their GCSE/BTEC options to study in year 10 and 11.

Subjects are blocked to provide students with the opportunity to specialise within an area of strength or opt for a broader curriculum across the different faculty areas.
As a school we regularly review the qualifications that we offer to ensure that we have an accessible academic and vocational curriculum for the boys of More House. This inevitably leads to adjustments in the subjects on offer according to the needs and requirements of each cohort. This approach enables individual pupils to achieve their potential and maintains our high level of academic achievement in public examinations.
On Friday 16th September 2016 Mrs Kerr, Deputy Head Curriculum, held a talk on how Level 1 / 2 BTECs work and how parents can support their children.
