Key Stage 3

‘Successfully Educating Children Together’

Key Stage 3 (Years 8, 9 and 10)

At Key Stage 3 the Curriculum places emphasis on the totality of pupils' experiences; the aim of which is to empower young people to develop their potential by providing life-long learning skills, capabilities and motivation.

Our pupils have opportunities to be actively involved in practical, open-ended learning experiences which develop visual, auditory and kinesthetic learning. Pupils are encouraged to work in partnership with their teachers and peers to set clear objectives for their work.

Pupils at North Coast IntegratedCollege are given the opportunity to develop effective personal and interpersonal skills, such as self –management, which are infused through the Curriculum.

In our changing society we believe that our pupils are given the opportunity which will allow them to strive for personal excellence.
