Course Content Year 7 & 8 – Key Stage 3
Students follow a broad and balanced curriculum that follows the revised National Curriculum guidelines. This includes including three hours of quality Physical Education each week together with regular lessons of Art, Music and Drama. Emphasis is placed on “Learning to Learn” including extended homework projects.
Students are set during the first few weeks of Year 7 in Mathematics, with setting in other subjects after the Autumn half term (movement between the sets is possible and happens not infrequently). This is followed by the creation of a number of ‘grammar stream’ classes after half term.
