Key Stage 3: Years 7, 8 & 9

Key Stage 3 (Years 7, 8 and 9) 

Our Key Stage 3 curriculum is studied over three years. Students study the full range of national curriculum subjects such as mathematics, English, science, modern languages, humanities, physical education, technology, the arts, computing, religious education, drama, PSHE and careers education. This provides an excellent foundation for both Key Stage 4 and the Sixth Form.

A three-year Key Stage 3 allows teachers to explore content in more detail, giving students an improved grounding in each subject they study and creates inquisitive and eager learners. It also allows students the opportunity to accumulate knowledge, behaviours, and skills to demonstrate and develop their cultural awareness. 

Students study either French or Spanish, focusing on developing a command of one language. A small number of students are supported in accessing other curriculum areas by not studying a language. 

Students finish year 9 with knowledge which prepares them for Key Stage 4 study as well as life beyond school.
