KS3 Curriculum: Years 7, 8 & 9
The first three years at Montsaye provide the foundations for all students to gain a sound basis in knowledge, skills and understanding, in line with the National Curriculum requirements, whilst also preparing them for the developing into ambitious learners that strive for excellence. Our key stage 3 curriculum allows for a smooth transition from key stage 2 but is ambitious in ensuring there is an upwards trajectory of skills across the key stage. Variations within key stage 3 will only be in exceptional circumstances to meet individual learner needs.
The curriculum is designed to support the mastery of subject topics but ensures there is preparation towards accessing the skills and examination demands at GCSE.
During years 7 to 9 students cover a broad and balanced curriculum studying a full suite of subjects from across the national curriculum. The current subjects studied at KS3 are:
• Design Technology
• Physical Education
• Ethics and Philosophy
• Computer Science
