Curriculum

At LHS, we know there is more to education than passing on information and passing examinations. Girls are encouraged to broaden their minds and develop their intellectual curiosity. 

Girls join our Senior School in Year 6, allowing them to gain an additional year of secondary curriculum. We don't undertake SATS in Year 6, allowing the girls to focus on a range of subjects, from Year 6 through to GCSE and A Level

We bring learning to life through visits, speakers and cultural experiences, allowing our girls to develop their skills and knowledge, alongside a love of learning.
