KS3 Curriculum

At Key Stage 3 (Years 7-8) students will study: 


German or Spanish




Design and Technology        




Food Technology 

Physical Education


Religious Education



Our year 7 curriculum is designed to be broad with students studying a large number of discrete subjects throughout the year. 

Many of our students study two languages (either French and Spanish or French and German). The students that don’t study two languages will study French with additional Literacy time within their curriculum to further support development of this core skill.

In addition, a small target group of students are withdrawn from languages teaching in both Years 7 and 8 in order to create additional time for them to study further Maths and English core skills. Parents of the students involved in this scheme will be informed via letter before September of Year 7.
