The aim of the KS3 curriculum is to build on the experiences from the primary phase and to support our students to become successful learners, confident individuals and responsible citizens.

At KS3, students are based in classes and have one teacher who delivers the full curriculum. Students study a rich, developmentally appropriate curriculum at KS3 which encompasses a broad range of subjects including: Literacy, Numeracy, Humanities, Science, PSHE, The Arts, Technology, Music and PE. The curriculum is delivered on a three-year rolling programme based on a thematic scheme.
