The key stage 3 English curriculum at Frogmore is designed to challenge, engage and nurture our students. Throughout years 7-9, students will develop the skills they need to tackle difficult and inspiring texts with confidence and certainty. Our priority at key stage 3 is to encourage a love of reading and writing, developing the crucial skills they will need as they continue to key stage 4.
Our students are assessed without levels at key stage 3 and are encouraged to take responsibility for their own progression through our reading and writing assessment criteria.
At Frogmore, we very much believe in the importance of a challenging and diverse key stage 3 curriculum which allows students to enjoy English whilst striving to meet a high level of challenge. We feel, wholeheartedly, that the time students have at key stage 3 is essential for embedding skills and encouraging a love for the subject, without the need for excessive references to their subsequent exams at GCSE.
