Key Stage 3
Throughout Key Stage 3, students experience a wide range of subjects of the British National Curriculum. We believe a coherent curriculum should make sense to learners that are relevant, engaging, and interesting. Our curriculum is designed to help pupils develop their ability to become successful learners, confident individuals, and responsible citizens by developing pupils’ skills.
A unique aspect of Key Stage 3 at The Phoenix Private School is the various projects and challenges set each year including Youth Enterprise, Science Fair Challenges, Debating Challenges, Careers Day, and many more. All of these challenges contribute to helping to nurture young people who throughout this journey become developed as more confident in risk-taking, are critical thinkers, and understand their part in the global community.
Four principle of the KS3
A unique child
Every child is a unique child, who is constantly learning and can be resilient, capable, confident, and self-assured.
Children learn to be strong and independent through positive relationships.
Children learn and develop well in enabling environments, in which their experiences respond to their individual needs and there is a strong partnership between practitioners and parents, and/or carers
Learning & development
Children develop and learn in different ways and at different rates. The framework covers the education and care of all children in early years provision, including children with special educational needs and disabilities.
