Curriculum – Key Stage 3

In Years 7 and 8, the curriculum builds upon the primary foundations to ensure a seamless transition to GCSE; embedding the OneSchool Skills and the over-arching ‘Learning to Learn’ philosophy as well as the core skills of literacy and numeracy to provide a solid foundation for GCSE and beyond. There remains a focus on core subjects with provision for the students to learn and express themselves in Art, Food, Public Speaking, and Physical Education and other active subjects. An emphasis on cross curricular activities, projects, team work, peer assessment and self-directed learning is strongly encouraged and is intended to make these years a varied and inspiring key stage for the developing learner.
