Academic Curriculum

We aim to educate and develop the whole person through a wide range of learning mediums that are both stimulating and challenging. By acquiring knowledge and skills, our students should come to appreciate the joy of learning and thrill of success. By so doing we produce young men and women of independent judgement who can express themselves articulately in speech and clearly on paper.

Our academic structure is one where students study courses which lead to GCSE and Advanced Level public examinations.  Standards in class work are high and young people perform strongly in external exams. At A-Level almost all presentations lead to at least a pass with, on average, over half of these being A or B grades.

Nearly our entire student Sixth Form population leave Gordonstoun to follow a degree course at their chosen university, including Oxford and Cambridge.

The quality of a student’s learning experience is high with a strong base of well-qualified teaching staff. Staff meet regularly to consider individual learner’s needs so as to support them sensitively and effectively.

Grading and Reports

We operate comprehensive systems of grading and reports, which are shared with parents on a regular basis, through both written correspondence and staff/parent consultations.  All parents have access to the Parent Portal, which includes a blog updated by students, where they can track their son’s/daughter’s progress. 

In addition, students are tracked and carefully monitored in all their subjects on a regular basis in order to help teaching staff give the best advice and guidance to individual students.
