Key Stage 3
At Temple Moor, we run a three-year Key Stage 3 (KS3) with a focus on breadth, balance and challenge. At KS3, students will study: Music; Performing Arts (including Drama and Drama); Design Technology (Food Technology, Textiles, Product Design); Graphic Arts (Fine Art, Graphics, Photography); Computer Science; Religious Education; Personal Development; Leadership through PE; and Read to Succeed. These subjects sit alongside the academic disciplines of English, Maths, Science, History, Geography and Modern Languages, which are also undertaken by all students.
Core PE promotes learning and leadership skills through Sport, as well as providing benefits to students in terms of regular exercise and physical and mental wellbeing.
Read to Succeed is our school wide reading programme. It develops proficiency in reading, across a range of age appropriate texts, which research indicates allows students to better access the full curriculum and articulate their ideas. This is supplemented by additional support through the use of Accelerated Reader, for a defined group of students.
NB: We reserve the right, under exceptional circumstances, to insist that a student accesses their educational provision in an alternative provision to Temple Moor High School, that better suits their specific circumstances and/or the needs of the rest of the school population.
