Key Stage 3 Curriculum
Students study all National Curriculum subjects:
Students study all National Curriculum subjects: English, Mathematics, Science, Art, Computing, Drama, Geography, History, a language (this could be French, Spanish, or Latin); Physical Education, Music, Religious Education and Technology. Students are placed in sets based on ability in most subject areas, but these are regularly reviewed to allow for movement between sets.
All students receive Physical Education lessons each week.
The students follow a broad and balanced curriculum which involves the use of the sports hall, gymnasiums, fitness centre, astro-turf pitch and playing fields.
Although Religious Education is an important part of the National Curriculum, parents/carers are entitled to withdraw their children on the ground of conscience after consultation with the Headteacher.
Students who are withdrawn from Religious Education are to be supplied with their own RE by parents/carers and will complete this during their normal RE lesson time.
Students with SEN
Teaching Assistants provide support to SEN students across the curriculum and where possible, students with SEN are integrated into mainstream lessons with the support of Teaching Assistants.
Where appropriate SEN students are given additional time and
support with English and Maths and access to curriculum that has been designed to develop life skills.
