KS3 Curriculum

 

Students at Key Stage 3 are offered a broad curriculum, building on their learning experiences from Key Stage 2 and preparing them for the next stage in their journey. There is a wealth of resources available to ensure all students are challenged and supported to fulfil their potential in the first phase of their secondary education.

Bradley Stoke Community School places special emphasis on learning to learn, thinking skills and emotional literacy for all students in Year 7 and is working closely with partner primary schools to ensure continuity of experience.

Great importance is placed on acquiring learning skills which can be adapted to any situation and students are encouraged to take responsibility for their own learning and organisation.

Students have a 2 year KS3, making their GCSE subject choices near the end of Year 8.
