KS3 Curriculum


(National Curriculum Year Groups 7, 8, and 9)

The School is obliged to teach the full range of National Curriculum Subjects and Religious Education to Key Stage 3 pupils.  The National Curriculum is made up of the following subjects.

Core Subjects Number of hour lessons per week
English 5 hours per week
Mathematics 5 hours per week

It is hoped that the majority of our KS3 pupils will achieve at least National Curriculum Level 5, (the National Average) in the core subjects by the end of Key Stage 3.
