Key Stage 3
Key Stage 3 runs from Year 7 to Year 9 and is based on the National Curriculum for England whilst being adapted for our international and Myanmar setting. We apply the most appropriate elements and enhance the curriculum as appropriate to suit the needs of our students.
Learning is supported by up-to-date technology. Every pupil is provided with a MacBook and internet access is available throughout the school campus. Lessons incorporate technology as appropriate but rely on more traditional media where technology does not provide a clear benefit.
Our curriculum aims high, and is delivered by subject specialists in a motivating and inspiring way. Whilst powerful knowledge forms the basis of what is taught in lessons, how lessons are delivered at BSY will depend on a multitude of factors:
- the subject itself
- the concept and idea being taught
- the stage of the learning sequence/unit of study
- the current understanding of the students in each lesson
Classroom delivery develops understanding of core knowledge and moves students beyond it. Teachers plan challenging lessons to accommodate students at different levels of performance matching lessons as closely as possible to individual needs.
Our Key Stage 3 curriculum is founded on the acquisition of powerful and enduring knowledge and understanding and forms a robust platform for success in Key Stage 4 when students will work towards the internationally renowned IGCSE qualifications.
