Key Stage 3


Key Stage 3 Assessment Framework

We believe that Years 7 – 9 are very important building blocks to ensure success in later life. Students will build upon KS2 mastery and acquire skills and knowledge at this stage which will support their success at Key Stage 4 and beyond irrespective of the pathways they choose.

Students develop the main key skills of literacy, communication, numeracy team building as an integral part of the curriculum, together with learning and thinking skills which allow them to flourish as independent learners. These skills and others are mapped across the curriculum.

All students follow a core curriculum in Y7 to 9 which is delivered through a variety of mixed ability and ability grouped teaching with additional literacy and numeracy support for those who need it. All students study a full range of academic and creative subjects, which can be furthered at GCSE if chosen.
