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.


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.
