**Key Stage 3**

At KS3, students are taught in sets of approximately 30 students with 6 lessons per fortnight. From September 2018 we will be teaching Year 7 in mixed ability groups, to allow students to settle in to their new school and to ensure that when we set the students for Year 8 we have a very good idea of their mathematical ability. We teach topics across 2-3 weeks followed by a Knowing, Using, Choosing (KUC) test which assesses students on their knowledge, application, and mathematical reasoning. The Progress Ladder is an Excel document which provides the students with a detailed breakdown of the topics and allows them to track their understanding and test results with additional resource locations provided for further study.

The links below can be used to access the Progress Ladders and Learning Resources for Years 7, 8, and 9.
