Kirkby Stephen Grammar School

A Co-operative Academy

Key Stage 3

At Key Stage 3 in Years 7, 8 and 9 we have three Theme Days per year. The pupils work on topics related to the real world, and solve problems and explore issues, often in groups.

In Year 7 students are set by ability in English and Maths which continues throughout the entire Key Stage, with Science being set in Year 8 onwards. Foundation subjects, which cover the full range of the National Curriculum, are taught in mixed ability groups although there is some setting wherever possible.
