The Curriculum

The curriculum spans a whole range of traditional subjects and our flexible ‘pathways’ curriculum enables us to personalise the students’ learning so they can be entered for some examinations early, but only if they are ready to do so. By the end of Year 11 our students will have taken between ten and thirteen GCSEs. The expectation is that they will achieve A* - C grades in every subject.

Almost all of our students stay with us for two years in the new UKAT Sixth Form to study A level subjects. Many students join us from other schools after GCSEs, including a number of boys. We offer an extensive range of A level subjects with the majority of students going on to study at university or the equivalent.

The progress of all students is carefully tracked and monitored and measures are in place to help those who require additional support. There is also additional support and a range of opportunities provided for those students identified as being ‘Gifted and Talented’.

Curriculum Statement

At Chatham Grammar School for Girls we have a curriculum designed to provide a stimulating education for all students. We believe it places education at the heart of the learning community and provides equality of opportunity and access for all.

All students at CGSG follow a core academic curriculum, which includes a comprehensive and balanced range of GCSEs leading to the EBacc and A level programmes. The curriculum offer is robust and ensures students gain places at prestigious universities across the UK and enter into a variety of high profile careers and professions in key areas such as Science, Business, Arts, Law and Finances.

In Years 7, the curriculum is aimed at equipping students with independent learning skills as well as to giving them the opportunity to experience a wide range of subjects prior to making informed choices for the future.

Assessment Students at CGSG are expected to make outstanding progress and meet challenging academic targets. Students are formally assessed under exam conditions in all subjects, in all year groups three times a year. Exam outcomes are sent to parents/carers. In addition, teachers mark and assess ongoing class work and homework and provide diagnostic feedback for future development.

In summary the curriculum is intended to provide a high quality experience for all, promoting breadth, balance and depth. Above all it should present stretch, challenge and stimulus in order to promote the highest possible levels of educational achievement.
