KEY STAGE 3

KS3 lessons are taught using a rotation so that all pupils get the opportunity to study Electronics, Resistant Materials, Graphics and Food. In Year 9 pupils will get an option to opt for one of these four GCSE subjects that are taught as either GCSE Food Technology or GCSE Product Design.

Lessons in KS3 are planned around a ten week rotation; a pupil would typically be taught for ten lessons in Food, Graphics, Resistant Materials and Electronics. All the lessons are very practical, great fun and are taught in Specialist Technology Rooms.
