Grammar Plus Stream

The Homewood School Grammar Plus Stream has many advantages over traditional grammar schools.

Overseen by the Head of Discovery College, the Co-ordinator of the Grammar Plus stream monitors the curriculum provision, working with Skinners Grammar School to ensure the experience for students is of the highest possible standard.

Discovery College Guide

Our aim in Discovery College is a very simple one, to ensure that all our students have the very best opportunity to excel and realise their potential in a rigorous but very supportive learning environment.

Our approach to learning is indeed innovative; however the day to day classroom experience is that of gaps, growth and grit.

Discovery College & Cancer Research UK

The charity Discovery college have voted to support this year is Cancer Research UK. Students were able to suggest a charity and then a democratic vote followed with Cancer Research UK receiving the most votes. We look forward to all the fund raising events for this worthy cause over the year.

Our aim in Discovery College is a very simple one, to ensure that all our students have the very best opportunity to excel and realise their potential in a rigorous but very supportive learning environment.  

Over a number of years the curriculum that we offer at Homewood School has been widely praised for its breadth of opportunity and innovation and in Discovery College we will continue this development. Students will follow a range of eleven subjects taught both independently and in collaborative projects where students apply their learning in real projects based on the world in which we live. This will allow all our students to develop in depth subject knowledge and skills but also the chance to apply their knowledge and work in a way that mirrors what will be expected of them as they pass through the school and into the world beyond.

The use of ICT is central to our curriculum, including the development of our Chromebook strategy to support learning in the classroom and preparation and enrichment activities that can be completed at home.
