  • Art and Design

  • History

Our Key Stage 3 curriculum is designed to ensure that all students develop the key skills they will require to be successful at Key Stage 4 and beyond. The development of Literacy is a key focus for all areas of the curriculum. All students have 8 one hour lessons every two weeks which will support individuals with the development of their reading and comprehension skills.

In addition to their normal English and Maths lessons, many of our students also receive additional support in these subjects either through small group sessions during the school day or through extra-curricular classes.
