Welcome to the Key Stage 3 (KS3) Curriculum area.
The EHS KS3 Curriculum
The KS3 Curriculum is designed to improve the way 11 – 14 year olds learn. It is specifically designed around the needs of the developing adolescent brain providing challenging, engaging, connected learning that young students find relevant and inspiring.
A learning process specifically designed for the 11-14 brain
The unique learning process which is based on research principles, connects subject learning in a way that is suited specifically to the 11 – 14 year old brain. It also creates opportunities for teachers to collaborate and communicate across different subject areas.
This creates a learning environment that helps students to become confident, independent learners, providing the necessary academic rigour to prepare them well for qualifications such as the GCSEs, the Arts Award and AQA Awards.
This academic year we have worked on Communication, Business and Crime. We have brought in outside speakers, visited relevant venues and enjoyed a themed day at the end of every term. This is where we collapse the timetable and engage the theme at a more practical level, working and collaborating across year groups.
