Getting the best from your child Key Stage 3 (Years 7, 8 and 9) Year 7 students
follow our Foundation Curriculum where they have a large part of their timetable
in their room with one teacher. This usually involves English and two or more
Humanities subjects. This programme of study gives them security and
confidence when they move from primary school.
Most of our teaching is in mixedability
groups. There is also ability setting
throughout the Key Stage in Mathematics. Students study the core subjects of
English, Mathematics and Science as well as PE, RE, History, Geography, PSHE
(including Citizenship), Design and Technology, Modern Foreign Languages,
Music, Art, Drama, Dance and Information Communication Technology. This is
enhanced by teachers who bring in outside visitors, as well as a full enrichment
programme of domestic and foreign visits.
