Key Stage 3 (Year 7 & 8)

In line with many schools across the country, as an Independent School, we do not have to follow the national curriculum; however, in order to build on the work students have done in Key Stage 2 and prepare for GCSE courses we use the national framework as our starting point in planning our programmes of study.  We provide a core curriculum centred around five of the ‘English Baccalaureate’ or EBacc subjects (English, maths, science, modern foreign languages and humanities).

The subjects studied in year 7 are:

· English
· Mathematics
· Biology

· Personal Social Health Education
· Urdu
· Arabic
