Key Stage 3 (Years 7-9)
The Key Stage 3 Curriculum is organised chronologically, constructed around enquiry questions with a focus on Empire as a key theme running throughout. The focus in Year 7 is focused on the Roman Empire and life in Medieval England. In Year 8 pupils study the Tudors, the Stuarts and an extensive unit titled 'From Slavery to Civil Rights'. Year 9 is focussed around the World Wars with the year concluding with a detailed study of the Holocaust. Assessment methods vary throughout the key stages but there is a solid focus on essay writing skills.
