Annie Hardcastle
Head of the Senior Department

Welcome to the Senior Department. Saint Felix Senior Department is an energetic and embracing environment where students are treated as individuals and their personal achievements are widely celebrated.

We encourage all pupils to fulfil their true potential and develop skills to aid them to succeed in school and in an ever changing world. We aim to develop pupils that persevere, question, communicate effectively, are creative leaders, strategists who co-operate and have an appreciation of their immediate surroundings and beyond.

The family ethos of the school and the outstanding pastoral care provided ensure all students are able to succeed in a supportive and challenging environment. Students achieve excellent public examination results and entry to the top universities, but equally valued is the production of high quality art, drama, music, photography and the many sporting achievements at the highest levels which our students continue to secure.

At KS3 our teaching programmes are based on the National Curriculum with the flexibility to embrace new ideas and undertake a wide range of educational visits and extra-curricular activities to foster in our students a love of learning. We offer a wide range of GCSE and A level courses, as well as enrichment programmes, career guidance, PSHEE and an extensive extra-curricular programme. Students leave the Senior Department as confident, articulate, friendly and responsible young adults keen to contribute to society and to face new challenges positively and with good humour.
