Day & Boarding School Curriculum for Boys Ages 5-13:
Every boy at Medbury studies the core subjects of English, Mathematics, Science, Information Communication Technology (ICT), Physical Education, Music, Drama and Art.

As boys move into Years 5 and 6, they continue with the strong emphasis of Literacy and Numeracy.  The core subjects are then supplemented by specialist teaching in Drama, Health, P.E. and Social Sciences.

Years 7 and 8 provide a stimulating and academic curriculum for the senior boys.  The teaching of Literacy and Numeracy is paramount.  Specialist teaching for the senior boys includes the boys going off-site for Technology lessons.  In the Senior School the core subjects are supplemented by Bio Technology, Drama, Electronics, Food Technology, French, Hard and Soft Materials, Health, Library and Social Sciences. 

Sport
Sport is an integral part of Medbury life and boys are encouraged to play sport at a level where they compete and enjoy.  We recognise that promoting teamwork and good sportsmanship are important aspects of playing sport, and reflect the school ethos of ‘Play the Game’. There is a wide range of extra-curricular sports available to the boys, for example water polo, triathlon, polo, karate, fencing, skiing, with their availability varying according to demand.

Music
Medbury School has an excellent reputation for its music programme, both choral and instrumental, and receives strong support from the school community.  The annual ‘Music Evening’ is a highlight of the school year, showcasing Medbury’s promising music talent.

Medbury’s well-qualified Music Director and other specialist music teachers ensure that every boy has the best opportunities to experience music.  Instrumental tuition is available from Year 4, and may include younger boys at the discretion of the Music Director and Class Teacher.

Art
At Medbury, boys in all year levels receive Art tuition and are encouraged to develop their individual creativity. Our art programme is run by a specialist Art Teacher in the Art Studio, enabling the boys to enjoy a variety of artistic styles and genre. The boys have an opportunity to explore many facets of art including painting, drawing, clay modeling and sculpture, print making, fibre and fabric, collage, design and graphics.

Drama
Medbury has an outstanding reputation for drama.  Under the direction of the Head of Drama, all boys have the opportunity to explore and use their creativity, through imaginative play, creative movement and dramatic performance.

Class performances are regular events.  The Senior School Musical Production is held biannually, allowing boys to learn and experience the excitement of performance in music and drama.
