Our focus is on ensuring every child makes as much academic progress as they can to achieve their very best.
Whether a pupil is targeted an A or a C, we will help them to push towards an A* or a B - we strive to ensure that every pupil makes the most academic progress they can.
All pupils have individual strengths and helping them to recognize these, combined with effective support and quality teaching, allows all of our pupils to make huge academic progress and to achieve the very best that they can.
“Pupils at Arnold Lodge School achieve outstanding examination results.”
Arnold Lodge School looks at the potential of each child, and through our small class sizes, academic support and our supportive environment, every pupil will achieve significant value added.
In the Senior School, the average class size is just 14 pupils with three classes per year group. With just 14 or less in a class, our excellent teachers can provide pupils with the time and support to help them fulfil their academic potential.
Small Teaching Groups
These small teaching groups, allow children to thrive and learn at their own pace. Teachers, pupils and parents work closely together to set targets and discuss how to meet these best.
“We measure our performance on how much value we add to each child against their targets. To us, a pupil is more than an exam statistic.”
Our exam results reflect how pupils thrive academically in small classes.
English, Mathematics and Science form the core of the curriculum.
Pupils are also taught Spanish, History, Geography, Drama, Music, Art, Food Technology and Sport, as well as a Personal, Social, Health and Economic Education programme.
Our curriculum includes Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural studies to allow pupils to develop their understanding of who they are, the wider world, other peoples and cultures, and the role that our pupils have to play in their own society and how they can make a difference.

Year 9 begin studying the GCSE Science Curriculum, details of which can be found on the KS4 Science Curriculum documentation.
In Year 9, the next step is for pupils to choose the subjects they will study at GCSE.
They can choose from the subjects they are already taught as well as a number of additions including Business Studies, Media Studies, Sociology, Physical Education and Psychology.
We offer a wide range of option subjects and a bespoke approach to examination classes. Some pupils take 10 GCSEs while others might take 7 GCSEs and have additional support in English and Mathematics.
We tailor our curriculum around what is right for the child so they can be successful and have the very best outcomes.
