The Curriculum

Sevenoaks aims to ensure that all pupils fulfil their academic potential. Pupils take GCSEs and IGCSEs in Year 11, and for some subjects take the Sevenoaks School Certificate. The sixth-form all study the International Baccalaureate, a rigorous two year course designed to provide a broad, balanced education, recognised as a qualification for university entry in the UK and overseas.

Games & The Arts

Pupils regularly achieve honours at rugby, cricket, hockey, netball, cross-country, basketball, sailing, shooting and tennis. There is a strong emphasis on music, drama and art; a world-class performing arts centre, The Space, opened in 2010.

Pastoral Care

Pastoral care is provided by a team of tutors and divisional heads, who provide guidance and support to pupils which is in addition to the care pupils receive in the classroom.
