Our senior school offers a small educational community that is focused on the potential of each pupil.  Our pupils, staff and parents work in partnership toward our aim of achieving together.  The senior school at St Gerard’s is located in the original convent building with  two more recent extensions to house purpose built classrooms.  The senior school is in close proximity to the junior school.  This allows the interchange of staff expertise and the opportunity for interaction between junior and senior pupils with the aim of benefiting the pupil’s education.

At the senior school our teachers are subject specialists and individual year groups rotate around classroom to attend lessons for different subjects.  Subject teachers are responsible for the design and delivery of their schemes of work as they align to the national curriculum and exam board specifications. Work is planned with close liaison, communication and support from the headteacher.  Each member of staff at the senior school is aligned to a form group to help monitor pupil’s personal welfare as well as their academic progress.

Our small class sizes in the senior school allow for individual attention for each pupil.  Teachers are aware of individual pupil’s strengths and target individual areas for improvement.

We aim for us all to:
