The secular curriculum is geared to GCSE and AS and A2 Level examinations when appropriate.

Pupils will be expected to do regular homework and parents are asked to give their support to see that this is done conscientiously.

Throughout the school experience there is concern for Personal, Social and Health Education (PSHE) which runs throughout kodesh and secular studies, as well as weekly assemblies and the extra-curricular activities. The goal is to help form young people who are informed, alert and able to make their own independent moral choices in all aspects of life.

The school's academic curriculum, coupled its extra-curricular activities, is imbued with the activist Lubavitch ethos, enabling its students to gain understanding and insight as citizens of contemporary society. They learn about the resources available to them and the challenges which might be faced for individuals and families in the 21st century.

The school strongly encourages pupils to continue their education at a Seminary for further Jewish education and training for leadership in the Jewish community.
