Key Stage 3 (Y7,8 & 9)

It is a big step for students transferring from primary school to a large secondary school. The first few weeks of the Autumn Term are an induction period designed to help students settle into life at Haygrove and gain confidence.

All students take part in Study Skills session to help them develop good habits and organisational skills. Tutors will actively encourage students to participate and progress in the Reading Scheme so that they can develop good reading habits and achieve certificates of success in reading. Year 8 focuses on engaging with learning and ensuring that each student makes the most of the opportunities available to them.

All Year 7 and Year 8 students should always have a reading book available for silent reading sessions; this can be brought from home or borrowed from the School Library.

 


At Key Stage 3 all students study:

  • Art and Design
  • Computing
  • Design & Technology including Food Technology
  • Drama
  • English 
  • Geography
  • History
  • Health and Citizenship
  • Mathematics 
  • Modern Foreign Languages

KS3 Exam Preparation for Parents

 


Year 7

Students are taught in their tutor groups for most lessons throughout Year 7.  Students are grouped by ability for lessons in Mathematics and in English from January onwards. Students who enter the school with low literacy or numeracy skills are given additional support through 1:1 tuition and other appropriate interventions.

 


Year 8

Students are separated into ability groups in Mathematics, English and Science. Spanish and German are introduced to the curriculum with half the year group learning each language each half year.

 


Year 9

Year 9 is a vitally important year for students as they start to prepare for their GCSEs and we place a great deal of emphasis on progress and achievement in their academic work.

Students continue to work at Key Stage 3 throughout Year 9.

In Year 9 students are taught in ability groups for the majority of subjects.

At the end of the year every student will need to make important decisions about choosing GCSE and other qualification and they will begin discussing this with their teachers throughout the year. It is important that parents begin to talk about the future with their child too.

You can find out more about Choosing Your Options here.
