Key Stage 3 Curriculum

During the 2020 - 21 academic year, we have suspended our option subjects in Year 9 to ensure that students can be taught in registration bubbles. This helps us to reduce the contacts between students and limit any spread of Covid 19. In 2020 - 21, the Year 9 curriculum will mirror the Year 8 curriculum. We aim to resume our usual curriculum when it is safe to do so.

The curriculum at Key Stage 3

Our curriculum at Key Stage 3 is designed to provide students with the skills needed to prepare them for the future. Students at Lealands study a number of core curriculum subjects detailed in the table below.
