Key Stage Three (Years 7 and 8)

Many of our pupils enter Year 7 with depressed literacy levels, consequently there has 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 Bedrock Vocabulary programme to enhance pupils’ range of vocabulary and reading ages as well as enrolling all pupils in the Star Readers programme. This is monitored weekly by Form Tutors. Reading tests are conducted twice a year. 

The subjects studied in year 7 are:

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

The subjects studied in year 8 are:

· English
