Key Stage 3

In Key Stage 3 students are between 11 and 14 years of age. Most join us in year 7 when they transfer from a mainstream or specialist primary school.  Our department is organised into five classes so students from years 7, 8 and 9 are placed within the most appropriate group for their learning needs.

All classes follow the National Curriculum suitably adapted to provide opportunities for young people to achieve success.  Whenever possible we look for opportunities to learn outside the classroom in interesting and innovative ways.

Our classes are:

3W- Miss Chisnall 

3L - Mr Mullen (Key Stage Leader)

3C - Mrs Appleton

3H - Mr Balson

3S - Miss Scott (Assistant Key Stage Leader).


Students are supported by teaching assistants;

Mrs Bradshaw

Miss Brannigan

Mr Brierley

Mr Croft

Mrs Dickinson

Mrs Elliot

Mrs Jewell

Mr Machaj

Miss Molyneux

Miss Pyne

Mrs Swords


Our experienced team of teaching assistants are based in the above classes but will move around within the the department to ensure the students benefit from their expertise.
