Key Stage 3 (Years 7, 8 and 9)

At KS3, students are placed into one of two bands of broadly equal ability for most subjects. One band studies French throughout KS3, and the other studies Spanish. Parents with a strong preference towards either language are invited to notify the school during the summer term of their son’s year 6, so that this can be accommodated in to our planning.

Across the two bands there are four sets of middle and higher ability as gauged by prior attainment and one set of lower / middle ability. There is the opportunity for students to move between these ability groupings depending upon their progress throughout the year.

 In Years 7-9, students study the following subjects:
