Curriculum years 7 - 11

Pupils joining at Year 7 and Year 9 take GCSE in Year 11. They then progress to A-Level in the Sixth Form. KPS also admits pupils at Year 12 directly into the Sixth Form.

"Pupils are confident, self-assured and successful learners. Their strong appetite for learning has a positive impact on the progress they make. They engage in discussions and debates readily, and show respect for different points of view."

Ofsted report 2018

From entry at either Year 7 or Year 9, pupils follow a broad traditional syllabus which includes English, maths, the sciences, modern foreign languages (including Mandarin Chinese), geography, history, classical civilisation and religious studies as well as art, design & technology, computing, PE, drama and music.  

This is supplemented by 4 periods of sport each week. During Year 9, GCSE subjects are selected for study in Years 10 and 11. The core subjects include maths, English and science and the remaining subjects are selected from option blocks. Pupils will typically study 9 or 10 subjects at GCSE level.
