Key Stage 3 is a challenging yet extremely enjoyable phase our students’ school career. We have designed the curriculum in years 7 and 8 to ensure that students are prepared, academically and socially during this time to enable them to achieve their potential in their GCSE years and beyond.
We aim to provide lessons across a range of subjects that will prepare students by providing them with the knowledge, understanding and love of learning which are needed for the future.
Key Stage 3 Curriculum statutory curriculum requirements for all:
- Modern Foreign Languages
