KS3 – Lower School – Year 7 & 8
As well as preparing our pupils for GCSE our curriculum at Key Stage 3 is designed to provide students with other the skills needed to prepare them for their future. Pupils at MGS study a number of core curriculum subjects: mathematics, English, biology, chemistry, physics, geography, history, Ivrit, ICT, PE and Religious Studies/PSHE. Full details of subject content and assessment criteria can be found in our Curriculum maps below.
In addition to subject criteria, each subject has also developed criteria for literacy. Literacy refers to everyday communication including grammar, spelling and the spoken word. Competence and confidence in literacy is fundamental to all areas of learning; it increases opportunities in all aspects of life and lays the foundations for lifelong learning and work. As well as monitoring subject progress, literacy will be monitored across the curriculum.
