Academic Overview

At North Bridge House Senior Canonbury, we have created a broad and varied curriculum that prepares students for the competitive global job market. Specialist options complement the balanced range of core subjects for every year group, so that, from the outset of their secondary education, students are familiar with and can pursue sought-after fields of interest.

From Year 10, students refine their curriculum choices as they progress through GCSE and A-Level to allow for greater specialism and depth of study. Together with weekly enrichment, PSHE, and tutor sessions, the curriculum at North Bridge House Canonbury targets life skills and personal development as well as academic achievement.
