At Key Stage Three pupils follow a common core curriculum which includes: English, Mathematics, Science, Technology, History, Geography, Religious Studies, French or German, Welsh, Art, Music, Drama, Information Communication Technology, Physical Education and a programme of Personal Health and Social Education. Pupils entering Year 7 will be offered a language “carousel” of Spanish and French. In Years 8 and 9 they will specialise in one language.
Pupils are set in the core subjects of Mathematics, English and Science in Year 7. The timing of this can vary as departments work to make sure they have enough information on the pupils before organising the sets.
