Henry Tyndale School

Key Stage 3

Through Key Stage 3 we offer a three year rolling plan where the first year of planned work was covered in the 2014 / 15 academic year, the second year of work covered in 2015 / 16 and so on. In 2017 / 18 we would then expect to be revisiting the planned areas of work for the first year. The work is of course reviewed and improved by the teaching team as the year progresses.
