KS3 Curriculum Overview

We have 6 periods of 50 minutes every day, making 30 periods in the week. There is a Hometeam (tutor time) period of 30 minutes from Monday-Thursday. Break (20 minutes) is between Periods 3 and 4 and lunch (30 minutes) is between Periods 4 and 5. School starts at 8:25am and finishes at 2:50pm for Y7 and 2:55pm for Y8 and Y9.

On three days each year, Years 7-9 have their own PSHCEE Days that are specifically designed to cover aspects of PHSCEE that cannot be delivered through other lessons. These days often involve outside agencies and guest speakers and cover issues such as drugs, bullying and careers. All students attend at least one assembly each week that is well planned which include collective worship and support the delivery of social, moral, spiritual and cultural aspects of learning, including the promotion of British values.

Key Stage 3 Curriculum

KS3 follow two different curriculum models. Those students who do not yet have a full grasp of the English language have three additional lessons of literacy.

The curriculum for all year groups and abilities is broad, balanced and challenging, encompassing a variety of academic subjects and practical based subjects.

If you have any questions regarding the curriculum please contact the school office.

Enrichment

Every student at Bradford Forster Academy has the opportunity to take part in a range of free enrichment clubs activity on most nights of the week after school and during lunchtimes. These sessions are planned and run to ensure that the curriculum is extended and other important skills for outside of the classroom are embedded.
