At Hampton High we are committed to ensuring students master the core subjects and enjoy a balanced curriculum. It is neither desirable, nor essential, for future career ambitions to over-specialise in specific subject areas. Therefore, we have developed an option system that offers students the right balance between breadth and specialism.
Key Stage 3 - Years 7, 8 and 9
In Years 7, 8 and 9 students will complete a three-year foundation course, which aims to give them a broad, balanced education with a wide range of study. The current Year 9 curriculum (the last year of Key Stage 3) covers 15 subjects and students need to reduce this number in the Summer term, moving to what we call 9.5, to enable their Key Stage 4 subjects to be studied in sufficient depth.
At KS3 all schemes of work are based on the new specifications at KS4. Students are usually taught in mixed ability classes except for Maths.
At key stage 3, 4 and 5 we have 29 period weeks with 10 registration periods. Each morning there is time for year group assemblies and tutor time activities which include personal, social and emotional wellbeing.
For Year 8 and 9 RE some of the topics are controversial and sensitive, some students might watch small clips that are sensitive and upsetting, any concerns or questions please email Mr Jones, email@example.com.
