KS3

Students follow an in-house scheme of work across years 7-9, it is both ambitious and aspirational, covering all the content required by the National Curriculum and beyond. We encourage an investigation led, skills-based approach to learning and seek to secure ambitious rates of progress for students.

The Key Stage 3 maths curriculum has been written to provide the essential content and skills required to succeed at GCSE, as well as developing skills that are essential in all aspects of life, such as logical thinking and problem solving.

Below is information about our KS3 curriculum. Each drop down box contains the topics we cover. For more detail on the knowledge we teach, please click on each medium term plan. Our curriculum map shows the learning journey that our students embark upon.
