Key Stage 3 English

Pupils have eight English lessons a fortnight in Key Stage Three, including one literacy lesson every week in Years 7 and 8.  Please note that despite being in Key Stage Four in other subject departments, in English Year 9 pupils will not be studying for their English GCSE until Year 10 and therefore are still regarded as Key Stage Three. Pupils in Year 9 will be taught the appropriate skills to prepare them for the new WJEC English Specification, details of which are included in a PowerPoint in the information provided in the Year 9 links below.

Please click on the links below for further information on the topics we study for each of the three years, plus information about core assessments for each unit.  In years 7 and 8 pupils are expected to complete homework projects alongside their learning in class; useful information regarding these can be found in the links below which will help you support your child in their learning.
