We aim to ensure every student is challenged to achieve their best at all times by consistently providing engaging lessons which stretch students.
Key Stage 3
In years 7 and 8 are taught in five ability groups. Each student is placed in a separate ability set for English and Maths and in a third ability set for all other subjects as shown below. Ability sets are reviewed regularly to ensure each student is appropriately placed.
- Design and Technology
During year 8 students will be given careers and subject advice and guidance in preparation for choosing their options for KS4. Students make their decisions in the Summer term of Year 8 and start their GCSE courses at the start of Year 9.
