Key Stage 3

All students in key stage 3 will study English, Maths, Science, PSHE, PE and Life Skills (including Careers Education, Information, Advice and Guidance).

Students also choose to study a range of vocational options to suit their level of interest and enable them to experience a taster of the skills early on that can enable a smooth transition to Key stage 4 and a wider choice of post 16 destinations opportunities in the future. Some Key Stage 3 learning occurs through a project based approach.

Vocational courses include:

  • Construction
  • Motor Vehicle Engineering
  • Hair and Beauty
  • Catering
  • Child Care
  • Sport
  • Outdoor and Adventurous Activities

Some students have a more bespoke curriculum and may access extended work placements or external provision if we feel more options are required to tailor the curriculum more specifically.
