Year 7, 8 & 9

As part of transition into Key Stage 3 we provide a comprehensive induction programme for Year 6 pupils working closely with partner schools. This includes a dedicated Year 7 Manager in conjunction with the Key Stage 3 Manager who oversees and supports all Year 7 students. Each year group is split into two forms, with an additional Autistic Spectrum Centre (ASC) form group based within our ASC provision.
Each form group is supported by both a Teacher and a Teaching Assistant, who are responsible for the pupils’ pastoral care. There are approximately 12 pupils per form. However, during some lessons students are grouped, allowing for smaller teaching groups. In other curriculum areas such as PE, the classes may be larger, to allow the pupils to access team sports and activities.
At Key Stage 3 a broad curriculum is accessed by all pupils and provides essential experiences in both core and foundation subjects. We endeavour to support pupils in all aspects of their learning, in an environment that is caring, secure, well-resourced and stimulating. Subjects are delivered by specialist staff in specific environments, appropriate to meet the needs of our pupils. Please see individual subject overviews for more subject specific information.
