Key Stage Three Scholars Programme

At Key Stage Three, our aim is to invoke a love of learning. The Scholars Programme at this level involves students undertaking a range of activities to enhance their academic accomplishment. These activities are themed into: Watch, Read, Listen, Write, Create and Do, and cover all academic subjects. Students choose a minimum of three to complete each half-term and will earn points and therefore rewards.  Students are responsibile for logging their activities which will be overseen in bi-weekly meetings with Miss Weeks. These meetings also offer a chance to discuss and reflect on their chosen academic activities. These sessions will also include opportunities to enhance students critical thinking skills. 

For Year 8 and 9 Scholars, there will embark on a research project in the Spring term 2024. These can be based on the skills they have learnt throughout the term, or on a topic of their choice that extends beyond the curriculum. The reports will be 1000-1500 words and students will also create a presentation to deliver to their fellow Scholars in the Summer term 2024. This project has been designed to stretch and challenge Year 10 students and requires them to carry out independent research on a topic. Previous Scholars and EPQ students in Year 13 will also be able to mentor the process. 

Potential titles could include:

Alien life - fact or fiction?

How has football changed since the 1500s? 

Can two deaf people from different countries communicate with each other?

Do Schools need to do more to help tackle Climate Change?
