Key Stage Three (Years 7 and 8)

Many of our pupils enter Year 7 with depressed literacy levels, consequently there has had to be a huge focus on developing literacy skills early to ensure pupils can access the wider curriculum and achieve exam success as they progress through school. We use the Accelerated Reader programme to enhance pupils’ reading skills and ages. This is monitored weekly by learning coordinators. STAR reading tests are conducted three times across the year.

The subjects studied in year 7 are:

· English
· Mathematics
· Science
· History
· Geography
· Religious Education
· Personal Social Health Education
· French
· Arabic
· Computer Science
· Art
· Drama
· Physical Education

The subjects studied in year 8 are:

· English
· Mathematics
· Science
· History
· Geography
· Religious Education
· Personal Social Health Education
· French or Arabic
· Computer Science
· Art
· Physical Education

Below is the weekly allocation of periods for each subject.
