Our Curriculum

Our fundamental belief is that all students are entitled to an individually tailored and holistic education that is broad and balanced and prepares them for the next stage of their education, employment or training. We therefore encourage students to sit exams as soon as they are ready, and offer a wide range of additional qualifications and extra-curricular enrichment to provide a rounded learning experience.

At Key Stage 3, we place great emphasis on giving all students a firm grounding in the core subject areas of English, maths and science. Pupils are streamed by ability in their classes, and further setting takes place in English, maths and science so that everyone receives appropriately tailored tuition. 

At Key Stage 4, we provide an even more personalised curriculum which is geared towards students’ individual aptitudes and skills. The curriculum in each pathway consists of the core subjects and a range of choices that allow pupils to progress on to courses at Key Stage 5. As a unique feature of our curriculum, we encourage pupils to sit exams when they are ready for them and many will finish before Year 11. Those that achieve high grades then have the opportunity to pursue additional courses or higher study in a wide range of subjects.

The primary aim of our Sixth Form is to prepare our pupils for the transition from school to university. Pupils have a wide variety of choice with most pupils taking 4 AS – Levels in Year 12 followed by 3 A – Levels in Year 13 and the vast majority of our students go on to gain places at leading universities or degree apprenticeships. 

Our curriculum is reviewed annually to ensure it meets the needs of our pupils.

A Level and AS Level Results - Summer 2021

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, A Level and AS Level exams were cancelled this year. Instead, grades for exams were awarded by teachers following a rigorous process of assessments that took place in school. These were then moderated internally by the school before a sample was sent for external moderation to our exam boards. Despite all the uncertainties, pupils at Wembley High continue to do exceptionally well and today will be celebrating our best ever results. Although traditional summer exams did not take place, these results are the culmination of years of hard work over many years and are thoroughly well deserved. Below are some of the highlights. A Level 54% of exams were awarded A* / A grades, including a record 124 A*s. 78% of exams were awarded A* - B grades. The overall pass rate remains at 100%. 54 pupils achieved at least 3 A grades, 16 pupils achieved at least 3 A* grades and particular congratulations to the 6 pupils who achieved 4A* grades. Over 55% of pupils have secured places at Russell Group universities, 5 will be going to study at Oxford or Cambridge and 5 have secured places to study medicine/dentistry. We wish them all the very best as they embark on the next stage of their education.  AS Level 68% of exams were awarded A - B grades. 84% of exams were awarded A* - C grades.
