Inspiring Education, Inspiring Lives!

Key Stage 3 Overview

From September 2021 we will begin to phase in a three-year KS3.  

The curriculum followed throughout the first three years includes the full range of National Curriculum subjects - English, Maths, Science, Art, Citizenship/ PSHE, Design Technology, French, Spanish, Geography, History, ICT, Drama, Music.

PSHE, includes Careers Education,  British Values, Keeping safe and SMSC.  Philosophy and Religion (PR) is taught following the Shropshire SACRE Agreed Syllabus and Health Education (including Sex Education) which is partially taught through Science.  Learning Support assistants are attached to individual pupils or classes in different subjects as appropriate.  Depending on individual arrangement in each subject, pupils will find themselves working in setted groups based on ability, mixed ability groups or tutor groups.

Pupils are prepared for school examinations and assessment and are guided carefully through an Individual Learning Plan (ILP) prior to their decisions about the curriculum most suited to them at KS4 and beyond.
