Years 7 & 8

We ensure all students at Magnus are taught a balanced and broad curriculum that encourages progress and achievement. All students study the core subjects of maths, English and science, with 13 periods out of 25 being dedicated to these important subject areas.

P.E, performing arts and technology also play an important part in our curriculum with students experiencing each subject within these faculties during KS3 before they decide on options at KS4.

Students in years 7 & 8 follow a 2 year KS3 curriculum. The weekly timetable consisting of 25 lessons is broken down as follows:
