Key Stage 3
Our Key Stage Three pupils are our oldest learners and are therefore expected to model the expected behaviours and outcomes for the rest of the school.
By this point in their education pupils are challenged to learn with even greater independence within a more specialised curriculum which has an increasing focus on specialist subject areas. Greater detail within a wider range of subjects helps to prepare pupils for the move into Year 9 and Upper School (usually Stratton for our pupils) with its associated challenge of external national examinations.
As pupils approach the end of their Academy journey there is a strong focus on developing their contributions to wider life, allowing them to ‘give something back’. Such opportunities are plentiful and lie across an extremely wide range of areas.
Whether supporting and mentoring younger children through areas such as our ‘Paired Readers’, or taking on positions of responsibility by becoming Young Leaders (Sports Mentors), Big Buddies (Student Counsellors), JANAs (Junior Assistant Network Administrators), House Captains or through other such remits, there are many opportunities for pupils to experience real responsibilities where they can make a difference to the quality of life and education for others within our Academy.
