To coincide with the significant changes made atKey Stage 4, schemes of work in Key Stage 3 have been completely rewritten to follow changes to the GCSE course structure. Each scheme of work is related to an extended text and theme, with texts chosen to challenge and stretch individuals. For example Animal Farm by George Orwell and Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck, both previous GCSE texts, are now taught in Key Stage 3.

In terms of assessment, each term students are assessed on reading and writing skills. Writing assessments change focus each term to ensure a variety of skills are being taught. In each reading assessment paper, an unseen section is also included to prepare students for the closed book nature of the new GCSE examinations.

Students have 4 lessons a week of English.
