KEY STAGE 3

 

YEARS 7, 8 AND 9

At Pedmore High School, our purpose is to empower all of our students to take responsibility for their own learning and unlock their potential by providing them with a range of opportunities to prepare them for their next steps. We deliver a creative curriculum for our students which supports the development of well-rounded individuals.

The KS3 curriculum is a broad and balanced offer for all students comprising  30 x 50 minute lessons per week. They experience a range of subjects, taught by specialist teachers through which they develop skills, knowledge and understanding and are then able to make informed choices about their KS4 curriculum which they start in Year 10
