Key Stage 3
KS3 English aims to prepare students fully for the challenges they will not only face in their English GCSEs but also in daily life. Over the course of two years, Year 7 and 8 students will have the opportunity to participate in a variety of experiences which are both relevant to school life and beyond.
Following the National Curriculum Programme of Study for Key Stage 3 in Reading, Writing, Speaking and Listening, our schemes of work encourage our students to become confident, independent learners through a wide range of individual, paired and group activities. Each half term, students study a different project to effectively prepare them for the new GCSEs. These are as follows:
KS4 English Language and Literature:
Eduqas Exam Board
To ensure full coverage of the new English Language and Literature GCSE specifications, and to compensate for the closed book Literature examinations, the English Department run a three year KS4 course, starting in Year 9.
Over the course of three years, students study two GCSEs: English Language and English Literature. Many of the skills overlap and there is an increased emphasis on spelling, punctuation and grammar for both GCSEs. Continued reading, both fiction and non-fiction, will help students develop their language skills and their understanding of literature. As timing is essential on the new GCSE papers, much of the assessment is to support students in improving their approach to examination questions. It is advisable that students complete independent practice questions at home to improve their ability to develop personal responses in a given time.
We strongly advise visiting the Eduqas website to access sample exam papers and exemplar responses for the new GCSE English Language and Literature examinations.

History, Geography and RE are taught as separate subjects at Key Stage 3 and are an option choice at Key Stage 4, along with Leisure and Tourism GCSE.
Geography has always been a successful and popular subject at the College. We aim to make learning fun by delivering a range of lessons that are relevant and dynamic, that engage students and teach them more about the world around them.
