Welcome to Upper School
When your child enters Upper School, they are embarking on one of the most important parts of their journey with us. All our nurturing comes to fruition and we prepare them for life beyond our Tower College family.
We encourage them to be the very best role models to the younger children and develop them into well-rounded young people who have a great sense of what is good, who know right from wrong and show compassion and respect for others.
We encourage your child to be the very best they can be and to strive for academic and personal excellence in the choices they made at the end of Middle School.
We support them in making decisions about the next stage of their education and lives and help them on their path to being successful, unique individuals.
We ensure each child is encouraged to strive for excellence by providing them with a curriculum and enrichment programme carefully designed to inspire and develop the imagination, enabling pupils to develop and excel both academically and personally.
Through our talented staff and tailored approaches to learning, we support our pupils to become independent and critical learners, ready to succeed in Key Stage 4 external examinations and progress successfully to post 16 study and learning.
We ensure the appropriate support is identified and put in place for each h child to enable them to achieve their full potential through carefully tracking and monitoring learning and progress.
When you child enters Upper School they will study compulsory subjects which give them essential skills and the options they have chosen through our child-centred GCSE options system. We believe that individually tailored selections are in the best interests of our pupils and means they will be able to study, in depth, the subjects which play to their strengths and interests. If a pupil is studying subjects of interest to them, which they have chosen themselves, they will be happier, more confident, better engaged and ultimately more successful. If you have a class or tutor group of engaged, happy children, each child will benefit from the positive learning environment and lessons. Parents will find pupils easier to motivate during study, revision and potentially stressful mocks and examinations. Family life, which is not always easy for today’s generation, is aided by giving pupils and parents real choice.
