Our Curriculum

At St Antony's we follow a two-week timetable which allows us to be flexible and able to meet the needs of our students. The curriculum is reviewed each year to ensure that we are providing the best education that we can offer for our students. In addition to specific lessons each student is part of a form group which spends fifteen minutes together every day either in assembly or in class completing a variety of activities.  Lessons are taught by subject specialists who are dedicated to providing students with exciting and content rich learning.
