Key Stage 3 Curriculum: Years 7, 8 and 9
Vice Principal Curriculum– Mr N Lad
The aim in the first three years is to give all pupils a sound basis in knowledge, skills and understanding, in line with the National Curriculum requirements, whilst also preparing them for the developing into ambitious learners that strive for excellence. In the Key Stage 3 curriculum, all pupils usually study a broad range of subjects that reinforces and then builds upon their Key Stage 2 experiences. Variations may exist due to individual educational needs or to provide specific student with the opportunity to study languages such as Polish or Guajarati. In either circumstance such routes will be discussed with parents/carers beforehand.
The curriculum is designed to support the mastery of topics and theories with students encouraged to develop their learning and understanding linked to the work and skills they will pursue further at GCSE level.
