The KS3 programme of study has recently been revised to address the necessity for a skills based approach and to ensure that students are fully prepared for the rigours of the reformed GCSE qualifications. KS3 students are timetabled in the LRC on a weekly basis. Students are set in 3 bands in years 7 and 8, and in 2 parallel bands in years 9, 10 and 11. We follow the Eduqas courses at GCSE, and all students are entered for English language and literature. A-Levels in English language and English literature are offered at KS5.

Homework is an important means by which students can deepen their learning and improve their understanding of topics studied.  More information can be found here.
