Key Stage 3
On entry into the school at the age of 11+, students are divided into three mixed ability populations, known as population A and B of equal size and each representing the full ability range. In Year 7 and Year 8 (Key Stage 3), all students follow a broad and enhanced National Curriculum.
In Year 7 the majority of students will take a Modern Foreign Language, either French or Spanish. In February, a second language will be offered. Some students will continue to focus on one language, however there is a very small number of students who do not do languages in Year 7. This group of students can become slightly larger during Key Stage 3.
