The college is currently undertaking an extensive curriculum review looking at provision in both KS3 and KS4.

Religious Education

Religious Education in KS3 and KS4 and Collective Worship Religious Education is provided in accordance with the East Sussex locally agreed syllabus, arrived at after consultation with the various church authorities.  The syllabus is essentially Christian and non-denominational but also introduces students to other world religions.  Regular assemblies are held and Mentors lead discussions in which practical, social, and moral issues may be discussed.  The college encourages its students to identify for themselves a clear set of essentially Christian values upon which to base the important decisions of their lives. 

If parents do not wish their children to participate in any aspect of the college's Religious Education they should write to the Principal who will make suitable alternative arrangements.

For Key Stage 5 A-Level options please see the Sixth Form pages.
