Key Stage 3 (Years 7-9)
The programme of study in each year at Key Stage 3 incorporates a variety of places, scales and issues and is planned for progression of skills, knowledge and understanding. Units in Year 7 develop knowledge of the local area and encourage students to begin making links with other places. This gradually increases in scale to facts about the UK, then Europe and the World. Units in Year 8 and 9 explore the concepts of environmental change, sustainable development and global citizenship.
