Students at KS3 are laying firm foundations for their GCSE subjects. They study the Core options of English, Mathematics and the three Sciences. All students will be taught three languages in Year 7, to enable them to choose two to pursue in Years 8-9. They will also study Physical Education, Geography, History, Religious Studies, Design Technology, Information Technology, Food and Nutrition, Art, Drama, Music and PSHEE. In Year 9, students will select options to carry forward into Year 10 and Key Stage 4. The options will be carefully selected after potential careers requirements have been fully discussed.
