The education offered in the Secondary School builds on the students’ previous learning and knowledge from Key Stage 2. In Key Stage 3, lessons are taught by subject specialists, with the class tutor having the important pastoral role of coordinating all aspects of the students’ academic and social development. At Renaissance we have high expectations of our students – all students are part of the learning process, and each student’s contribution to the school is valued.

Year 7 students are the youngest in this area of the school, and those in Year 9 are on their way to becoming responsible adults.

It is our aim to help prepare students for the adult world and make them more independent and self-aware. Students are introduced to a wide range of subjects and studies and are encouraged to learn and think for themselves. Teachers endeavour to give them the confidence to join in, to ask questions and help others, laying the foundations for academic success at IGCSE and beyond.
