Key Stage 3 Curriculum

The curriculum provision at Twickenham Academy is broad, balanced and fully inclusive. There is an emphasis on promoting strength and success in traditional academic subjects, but this is balanced with a desire to foster variety and personalisation in our provision. The curriculum is constantly reviewed and developed to not only meet the needs and strengths of our students, but to provide rich opportunities for them to develop a range of skills and enjoy memorable experiences.

At the beginning of Year 7 there is an induction period during the first 6 weeks. We believe that the most effective and fairest way of grouping students is setting by ability, using nationally generated data alongside our data based on general intelligence, baseline tests in subjects to ensure that students have been placed in the appropriate sets. These tests also contribute to an indication of future performance up to GCSE level and allow us to track progress from the start.

Along with the core subjects students will also study art and design, dance, drama, geography, history, music, design technology, computing, religious studies, French or German. Every student is set separately in English, mathematics,science and grouped into either French or German. We operate a flexible system with regards to setting and use the review system to make adjustments throughout the year. Key Stage 3 is the launch pad for excellence in Key Stage 4 and has a curriculum built on the skills and knowledge needed for success.
