By the end of Key Stage 3 a child should be numerate and literate enough to access the GCSE curriculum in all the subjects they will study at Key Stage 4. They will have studied a broad variety of subjects, with many concepts being developed beyond the core which interest and inspire them.
At Key Stage Three we offer
• English & Drama • Mathematics • Science • Spanish • History & Geography • Religious Studies • Citizenship • Art & Design • Music • Technology • ICT & Computing • PE
Our reading programmes including accelerate reader and DEAR (drop everything and read) ensure our students take enjoyment from reading and will have been exposed to a variety of texts which challenge and inspire them. They have experienced creativity that may have inspired further development or identified great talent through subjects such as Art, PE, Drama, Music and Technology. High quality Citizenship, RSE and health education will ensure every student is equipped with knowledge, skills and understanding to prepare them to play a full and active part in society.
With an emphasis on aspiration and CEIAG provision by the end of Key Stage 3 students will be able to make sensible subject option choices because they know what they enjoy and excel at, but also what they might need later on in life because they have an emergent idea of what area they want to study in or work in later in life.
