KS3

Key Stage 3

KS3 Vision

At Key Stage 3 we support the school’s vision to prepare students for life by giving them the skills and confidence they need to be successful in the wider world.  Students are given a variety of experiences through an engaging and stimulating range of activities completed within lessons, active tutorials, around school, the local community and beyond. Learning and teaching is dynamic in all subject areas, therefore ensuring our students are fully prepared for Key Stage 4.  We instil a sense of pride in all our students and promote the notion of excellence in everything they do.

Year 7 – Induction and Development

The key focus in Year 7 is to induct students into The Beacon School’s routines and academic/behavioural expectations.  There is a particular focus on developing a love of learning within a culture that promotes independence and celebrates student achievement, effort and ‘going the extra mile’.  Students become active and valued members of the school community, taking part in House competitions and charity events with the added opportunity of becoming involved in prestigious school events such as the School Production and Christmas Concert.

Year 8 – ‘To be KS4 ready’

The key focus in Year 8 is to ensure students have the best opportunity to achieve their end of Key Stage 3 targets and have academic ambition.  There is a particular focus on developing students’ resilience and retention skills through the rigour of their study.  Students continue to build upon their wider knowledge of the world through lessons and a range of topics studied during active tutorials.  They take on greater responsibility within school and become role models for younger students. Broadening students’ understanding of varied careers through a range of activities informs their transition to a more personalised programme of study at Key Stage 4.
