Key Stage 3

At Key Stage 3, all students study: English (including Drama ), Mathematics, Science, Religious Education, Geography, History, Design Technology, French and/or German, Art, Music, Physical Education, Information Technology and Values in Practice (including: Citizenship and PSHEE). We take careful note of Key Stage 2 results and other information from primary schools. There is some setting in year 7 in Maths and, additionally, in year 8 there is banding in Science, English and Modern Foreign Languages. Parents/carers are advised within our Parent Handbook of the right to withdraw their children from Religious Education and Relationships and Sex Education lessons.


Assessment at KS3
The Government has removed the requirement for schools to use National Curriculum levels for assessing students at KS3 and given schools the freedom to develop their own assessment systems. However, students, parents/carers and staff are very familiar with NC levels. As a School, we have taken the decision to retain NC levels, although they are now based on the new KS3 National Curriculum and reflect the increased rigour of the new NC content.





Assessment Schedules

The following tables show the planned schedule for assessments in years 7, 8 and 9. Please note that these are for guidance and the exact assessment periods for some subjects may change, particularly for subjects in which different teaching groups do assessments at different times.
