Key Stage 3

The school operates a two week timetable, with 5 periods of 1 hour each day.

The majority of subjects are taught by mixed ability however there is setting in Maths, English and Science.  We use a range of data to assist in the tracking and monitoring of students’ progress and to assist in setting.  These include Key Stage 2 performance, expected levels of progress and Cognitive Ability Tests (CATs).
