Economics is taught at A Level in Canons High School. Students follow the OCR syllabus and use ‘Economics’ by Alain Anderton (6th Edition) as the core text book. There are currently two Year 12 classes and one Year 13 class. Other resources such as Tutor2U activities and You Tube video clips are used to supplement learning; and there is a culture of shared planning of presentations and materials in the department.
We are an extremely vibrant, multicultural school in Harrow, NW London and are very proud to serve a comprehensive intake of students who make good progress and achieve well in their time with us.
At Canons, we pride ourselves on the training and development of all our staff so that students are taught effectively and supported within and beyond the classroom to the highest levels. The sense of community is strong and staff well-being is prioritised. School leaders at all levels are well-equipped to use their professional judgment and a wide range of information to challenge and engage all students to achieve success, identify underachievement, act upon it and help students get back on track. We offer a well-balanced two year KS3 programme that enables students to enjoy success in their GCSE exams, which begin in Year 9. Students also have the opportunity for enrichment courses that allow them to go beyond the confines of academic qualifications and follow their dreams.
This wonderful provision ensures that students make good progress. Many of our GCSE, BTEC and A-Level courses have extremely high pass rates with over 90% of our A-Level students securing places at University.
Just as importantly to us, students leave Canons High School with a keen sense of right and wrong, a commitment to going above and beyond what is expected of them, a willingness to help others and the confidence to be helped by others. In short, they leave as fully-rounded and very likeable human beings who constantly challenge themselves to be better at everything they do.
