In Years 7, 8 and 9 (Key stage 3) pupils take the following subjects:
Design and Technology
ICT & Computing
Performing Arts (Drama and Music)
Philosophy, Beliefs and Ethics
In Year 7, students are organised into equal-ability classes, using primary school data. Mathematics uses ‘sets’ from Year 7 with Science setting in Year 9. These sets are frequently reviewed and further Year 7 testing can result in some pupils moving classes. Many students study two Modern Foreign Languages (MFL) and go on to study at least one language at GCSE.
