The curriculum at Stover comprises a broad, well balanced spectrum with the core subjects of Mathematics, English and Science being supported by ICT, Geography, History, Music, Drama, French, German, Spanish, Art, Home Economics, Physical Education, RE and PSE.
At GCSE pupils may chose from over twenty subjects. Stover is unusual in that the choices available are designed to meet the pupils' requirements as far as possible. Staff liaise closely with both parents and pupils to ensure that the most suitable combinations of subjects are considered. Normally pupils study nine subjects but many take the opportunity to follow more. Academic progress is monitored by a series of grades, reports and regular meetings with Form Teachers and Academic Heads of Departments.
Boys and Girls in Years 10 and 11 receive extensive careers advice and are encouraged to plan ahead. Cross-curricular skills such as Information and Communication Technology are particularly well developed and resourced throughout the school.
