Key Stage 3

KS3

ages 11 to 14 years old

Although SATs will no longer be compulsory in English schools from the academic year 2009/10, many schools have decided to opt-in. We support students who are in Year 8 and 9 and have been entered for their optional SATs in Maths, English and Science. There are intensive holiday courses as well as online resources for registered students.

This stage covers all students in years 7, 8, or 9. Pupils that attain level 6 or above in Science, Maths, or English are guaranteed writing GCSE higher paper a year early as preparation for 6th Form scholarships.

All year 10 students are encouraged to attempt GCSE in Maths, English, ICT or French a year early. They are also guided with their Coursework for many subjects.
