Key Stage 3

The aim of St Anne’s Catholic School’s broad and balanced curriculum is to:

  • Develop a life-long love of learning.

  • Ensure that every pupil is able to pursue excellence through a learning journey that best suits her or his needs, aspirations and abilities.

  • Promote the spiritual, moral, social and cultural development of every pupil.

  • Achieve outstanding results at GCSE and A Levels.

  • Prepare every pupil well for their next steps beyond learning at St Anne’s.

  • Prepare every pupil to make a positive contribution to life in modern Britain.

Key Stage 3

On entry to Year 7, your daughter is placed in classes according to her KS2 attainment in maths and English. The exception is Creative Design classes which are set separately to allow for smaller class sizes in practical subjects. The appropriateness of the classes your daughter is in is regularly reviewed. However, we aim to keep class changes as minimal as possible as we feel a stable learning environment is best for her happiness and sense of security. For this reason changes to classes normally only happen at the end of an academic year and most stay with the same class throughout Key Stage 3. We would always inform you of any planned changes to her classes.

The current classes are arranged as follows.
