Academic

Our mission at St Augustine’s is unashamedly to maximise each girl’s academic potential. We value every subject equally and offer a broad range of subjects at GCSE and A Level.

The girls avail themselves of a broad and varied curriculum, taught by exceptional and passionate teachers. Core curriculum subjects are taught, including English, Mathematics, Religious Studies and Science, together with a range of other Humanities and Arts subjects. In addition, a number of languages including Russian, French and Spanish, are on offer. Classical Civilisation, Greek and Latin are also taught. Our ambitious Science Department has set up our very own Priory Farm with the unique opportunity for girls interested in the wider application of Science. The curriculum is underpinned by an Enrichment programme and complemented by educational visits, talks and expeditions.
