KS3

Key Stage 3 is an exciting time in your child’s learning and our aim is for students to study a rigorous curriculum focused on the key knowledge and understanding that will both prepare our students for the challenges of GCSEs and A Levels and give them the foundation to go on to live rich and fulfilling lives.  Our broad and balanced curriculum promotes the academic, personal, social and physical development of all pupils and prepares them for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of adult life. 

For more details on the content of the curriculum in each year group, and how you can support your child's learning, please see our Autumn Term Curriculum Guides and the copies of the presentations from each of our Key Stage 3 Learning Journey Evenings:
