Key Stage 3

In Key Stage 3 pupils 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 with three vertically grouped classes so pupils from years 7, 8 and 9 are placed within the most appropriate group for their learning needs.

We have a sensory group and 2 groups which 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:

KS3 Foundation - Mrs Reston is the class teacher (and department lead).

KS3 Progress - Mr Balson is the class teacher.

KS3 Transition - Mrs Appleton is the class teacher.

Students are supported by teaching assistants Mr Croft, Mrs L Jones, Mrs Elliot, Miss Molyneux and Miss Pyne. 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.
