English at Key Stage 3

From the moment students arrive in Year 7 they are immersed in challenging and engaging topics which take them on a journey through language and literature across centuries of prose, poetry, drama and nonfiction.

Our topic and assessment schedule have been designed with five year progress in mind, from Year 7 to Year 11. We begin focus on the skills needed to answer the different exam style questions from Year 7 and build on these through Year 8 and Year 9, bridging the gap between Key Stage Three and Key Stage Four.

Below is the overview of learning for English at Key Stage Three.
