Key Stage 3

We provide memorable experiences for learning across a broad and balanced range of subjects. All students in Years 7 to 9 have dedicated Learning to Learn and ICT sessions to enable them to acquire and practise core skills which are essential throughout the curriculum and for effective lifelong learning. All students in Years 7 to 9 experience a broad and balanced curriculum. They study Mathematics, English, Science, Physical Education, ICT, History, Philosophy, Geography, Music, Art and Drama. All students study French with the chance to study Spanish or German as a second language.


In Years 7 and 8 students study five Technology areas (Graphics, Resistant Materials, Food Technology, Textiles Technology and Systems & Control) with the chance to specialise in one of these areas in Year 9 in preparation for their GCSE studies. All students have two learning reviews a year with their learning manager and Learning to Learn lessons to ensure the students become lifelong learners. During registration time with their learning manager students take part in active global citizenship and a range of activities including bites, newswatch, online time and assemblies. The school promotes British values and tolerance and diversity. A provision map of how we promote British values can be found here.
