Our aim in Key Stage 3 (years 7-9) is to give all girls access to a broad and balanced curriculum which will equip them with the knowledge and skills they need to develop as young learners.

All girls at Woodford County High School follow the National Curriculum laid down by the Department for Education. This covers all subjects except Religious Education, where they will follow the syllabus agreed locally by the Statutory Advisory Council for Religious Education (SACRE). In addition all girls spend one hour each week on Personal, Social, Health and Careers Education (PSHCE).

In Year 9 all girls begin to study for GCSEs in Biology, Chemistry, Mathematics and Physics. This means they have sufficient time to cover the content of these large and challenging syllabi in preparation for the examinations in the summer of Year 11.

Assessment and reporting in Key Stage 3 is carried out using our own methodology and is based on student progress. This is explained in full at the Year 7 Curriculum Evening in October. For further details, please consult the Powerpoint below.
