As class sizes are small (usually no more than four) they have a large amount of flexibility in organising an individual programme of study for our Post-16 pupils. They offer a tailor-made curriculum helping their pupils transition to the next phase of their personal and academic development, encouraging them to complete any outstanding qualifications they may require for their future.
Secondary schools are for children aged between 11 and 16 studying Key Stage 3 and Key Stage 4 of the education curriculum. Secondary school education includes studying towards GCSEs that are an important part of every childs education.
Secondary pupils and Sixth Formers, Year 7 and above, from the UK and overseas can board at Slindon College. The Boarding House is split by floors into Juniors and Seniors, who co-exist together and with the help of the Boarding team, form a tight-knit family atmosphere.

Slindon works with each boy on a rounded social and educational development foundation, offering both nationally recognised examinations and social advancement targets.
