Key Stage 3
Daily Updates

Key Stage 3

In year 3, 4, 5 and 6 at primary school children are taught to a key stage 2 level and their abilities are assessed using SATs in year 6. The SATs results for the children moving up to St Francis Xavier are sent to us so that we can continue to build on the progress each individual has made in key stage 2. In year 7 they begin the key stage 3 curriculum at St Francis Xavier School.

For many, moving to secondary school is the first time they will be exposed to a wider range of subjects. Although this can be a little overwhelming at first it soon becomes the normal routine and children often find they relish the new subjects and flourish with the opportunity to explore new avenues of learning.

Children follow the key stage 3 timetable for year 7 to year 9 in the following subjects:

English & Drama
Maths 
Modern Foreign languages  
Biology 
Physics 
Chemistry 
Art 
ICT 
Resistant Materials 
Textiles 
Graphic Products 
Food Technology 
Physical Education 
Music 
Religious Education 
Geography 
History

In year 9 pupils are supported in their subject selection (options) for key stage 4. These are the subjects they will study in year 10 and 11 to sit their GCSE exams
