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.
