The academic journey begins for many in Years 7 and 8 at Worth. From their first day in the School, we aim to foster in our pupils an enthusiasm for learning that will help them to enjoy their studies and develop and achieve their academic potential.
Highly professional teaching in small classes helps to ensure that pupils make excellent progress. Careful monitoring by tutors and teachers, and the learning of study skills, also encourage high achievement.
“Pupils’ attitudes to learning are excellent and they recognise that the School values a positive attitude rather than pure outcomes.” ISI Inspection 2017.
The Academic Endeavour Award which recognises and rewards academic effort challenges pupils to give of their best throughout the academic year.
The curriculum in Years 7 and 8 is broad and well-balanced, and seeks to avoid any early specialisation. Pupils have lessons in Art and Design, Drama, English, French, Geography, History, ICT, Latin, Mathematics, Music, Physical Education, Religious Studies and Science.
There are many opportunities for Academic Enrichment with numerous clubs and societies.
In addition, many departments organise trips and visits to London and within the South East. In the summer of Year 8, all members of the year group have the opportunity to take part in a visit to a collège in Aurillac in the Cantal region of France.
