At Key Stage 3, the curriculum is broad and balanced for all students. This is the time when students build upon their primary education to prepare themselves for Key Stage 4 choices. Students study a range of subjects including English, Maths and Science. Beyond this core, Geography and History are taught as separate humanities to all students. Drama, Art, Dance and Music make up the creative component of the curriculum. French is the modern foreign language offered to our Key Stage 3 students. Technology is taught through 1 period per week of Workshop (electronics, resistant materials, systems and control, and graphic products) and another Technology period which is allocated to Food Technology and Textiles. Finally, we offer Computing, Philosophy & Ethics and PE throughout the Key Stage. All in all, this ensures students have an inclusive curriculum which prepares them for life in modern Britain.
Our Enrichment curriculum is well-matched to students who achieve Level 3 or below on their Key Stage 2 tests. Extra time allocated to Literacy which is aimed at supporting students to experience rapid progress in reading, writing, spelling and comprehension. Students who follow this curriculum have the opportunity to graduate from the Enrichment programme and follow a mainstream curriculum once good progress is consistent. The impact of this curriculum for many students is astounding.
