Seniors at The Towers Convent School

Where we encourage the development of independent thinkers…

We recognise that children have their own needs and are proud to say that at The Towers Convent School we are large enough to provide excellent facilities, but small enough to know each child and to cater for all aspects of each one’s personality.

The Towers Convent School encourages the development of independent thinkers ready to join the global community when they leave. By the time they leave our girls are equipped with a sound, rounded education and excellent results.

Many girls win awards to other major independent schools whilst others prefer to complete their education at local sixth form colleges.

Key Stage 3 (11-13 yrs)

At this Key Stage, generally, the pupils follow the National Curriculum guidelines for each subject. In Years 7 & 8 pupils study the core and foundation subjects English, Mathematics, Science and Religious Studies, and at the beginning of Year 9 the pupils are setted for their English, French and Science lessons. In the Christmas and Easter Term of Year 9 pupils are given a short programme of study to assist them in making wise choices for their Key Stage 4/GCSE curriculum.

Key Stage 4 (14-16 yrs)

The Towers has a policy of protecting pupils’ future Curriculum and Career choices by retaining the following subjects as compulsory: English, English Lit, Mathematics, Science, Religious Studies, and Physical Education. In addition pupils may choose 3 more from 9 further subjects.

Results

From Key Stage 2, where we use externally written but internally marked tests through to GCSE, The Towers Convent School has continued to maintain a very high level of achievement. In fact our hard working and committed girls generally achieve GSCE grades approximately two grades higher than bench-line tests predict or indicate. See the GSCE results page here.
