Our Key Stage 3 Curriculum

The essential purpose of the school is to enable students to fulfill their potential, not merely as separate personalities but also as contributory members of the community.

Introduction

Key Stage 3 refers to the first three years of secondary education: Years 7, 8 and 9. The curriculum is broad and balanced; the subjects studied and the proportion of curriculum time allocated to each subject is shown below.

As a school, we aim to provide effective courses and learning experiences which provide the maximum number of opportunities for our students to:

  • develop their academic, physical and other abilities;
  • achieve the best qualifications possible; and,
  • progress further in education and employment.

The curriculum is designed to enable all young people to become responsible British and world citizens who:

  • are well prepared for life and work;
  • are enterprising;
  • are able to work with and respect others;
  • understand their own cultures and traditions alongside others appreciating the benefits of diversity; and,
  • sustain and improve the environment, locally and globally.
