Key Stage 3 is a three-year programme covering Years 7 to 9. The objectives of this Key Stage are to:
- ensure a smooth transition from whole-class teaching in Key Stage 2 to specialist subject teaching at Key Stage 3.
- introduce students to a broader range of subjects building upon those already introduced at Key Stage 2.
- pave the way for GCSE and IGCSE at Years 10 and 11 (Key Stage 4).
- extend the challenges offered and the demands to be faced as new knowledge and skills are introduced.
- encourage the development of learning skills and the ability to research, apply and interpret appropriate knowledge and information sources.
- continue emphasising the importance of basic skills in literacy, numeracy and science.
- improve the communication skills of all pupils, particularly through the use of media.
- advance the pupil's cultural sensitivity towards, and moral and ethical understanding of, our social and cultural milieu.
- encourage each pupil to contribute positively to the school community and to become an active participant in all areas of school life.
- ensure that physical, moral, social and emotional aspects of a pupil's development are encouraged and expanded, without detracting from the growth of each student's personal leisure interests.
- encourage each student to adopt a positive attitude to the care and protection of the environment.
