Key Stage 3

What Exam Preparation Do You Need?

Depending on the school, Key Stage 3 comprises either 3 academic school years, (7, 8 and 9), or 2 academic years, (7 and 8). The main purpose of this stage is to broaden pupils education, give pupils scope to develop interests that allow them to make choices about their education at GCSE level and provide them with the foundations to move onto more complex concepts.

How can we help?

In our experience, Key Stage 3 can either be a time where students move forward and are able to transition to greater things, or they find it difficult to cope. Between Key Stage 2 and Key Stage 3, students will certainly feel that more is expected of them and concepts that they need to understand will become more complex. These factors, coupled with physiological and emotional development in these teen years, can be difficult for some students to manage. Therefore, Key Stage 3 students need to be encouraged and challenged. Success at this stage, often greatly improves the probability of success at Key Stage 4, as it lays the foundations for their next steps.

At Redbridge Tuition, we take the development of our Key Stage 3 students seriously. Key Stage 3 can often be a strange time for students. They are, of course, still learning, but the pace at which they learn seems to be slower. At the start of KS3, year 7 is often a transition year as children settle into life in a secondary school. In year 8, children start to look at topics in a little more depth. Many schools start the GCSE curriculum in Year 9, but this tends to vary from school to school.

Keeping students goal-oriented and providing them with the educational expertise to assist them with their learning, forms part of our approach in helping them succeed at this stage, thereby hailing them to enter their GCSE stage with much greater confidence.

We offer English, maths and science tuition for KS3. In all 3 subjects, the main aim is to ensure that the transition from primary to secondary is supported and nurtured.
