KS3 Curriculum

The curriculum is a carefully sequenced (knowledge engaged) curriculum based on the principles of cognitive science. There is a focus on the development of literacy and the application of acquired knowledge to ensure children access the curriculum at a depth to ensure a deep and enduring understanding in discrete subject areas.

From 2022/23, the school will have a 3-year Key Stage 3.
