Curriculum: English Key Stage 3

At Key Stage 3, the focus is very much on developing the key skills of reading, writing, speaking and listening in a range of contexts and for a range of audiences. As students progress through Years 7-9, they will study a range of text and media and become increasingly skilled in expressing themselves confidently and fluently.

The Key Stage 3 curriculum takes us through an exciting range of thematic programmes of study, which include:

Year 7 - The Village, Other Cultures, Heroes

Year 8 - ‘Hamlet’, Pioneers, George Orwell’s ‘Animal Farm’  

Year 9 - John Steinbeck’s ‘Of Mice and Men’, Sherlock, Macbeth, GCSE Poetry

Each theme is explored in and imaginative and engaging way, exploring a range of texts which prepare students for the demands of the GCSE course in Key Stage 4.
