KS3 provides the foundation of knowledge for success at KS4. The aim of KS3 is to bridge any gaps in knowledge from KS2 into KS3 and to both strengthen and deepen students’ knowledge in specialist subject areas. Students are provided with opportunities to develop their research and analytical skills and to express and articulate their opinions coherently and confidently.
There are twenty five periods per week and each lesson will last for 60 minutes.
At Sweyne Park we like to involve parents/carers directly in the work of our school. A strong home-school partnership is essential if students are to achieve their best in national qualifications and to take a full part in all that the school offers.
Students in KS4 will follow a core curriculum followed by four optional choices. The current offer for KS4 students will be outlined soon.
