Learning in Key Stage 3

What Will I Learn in Years 7 & 8?

On entering the school at the start of Key Stage 3, the students’ learning needs are assessed in relation to their Key Stage 2 achievements and Cognitive Ability Tests (CATs).

As a result of this, students follow one of the three curriculum "pathways":

Success, Achievement & Excel

The pathway chosen for your child will meet their learning needs, styles and abilities. Additionally, pupils are set within their pathway.

Each pupil’s progress is regularly measured and reviewed by moderated assessment tests and the results of these can inform set and pathway changes.
