Key Stage 3 covers Years 7 to 9 when students are aged from 11 to 14 years-old. The Key Stage 3 Curriculum provided by schools must ensure a smooth transition from primary school and provide a firm foundation for education after the age of 14.

The individual subject programmes of study for the Core and Foundation subjects and the associated cross curricular themes and key skills provide a framework for ensuring that students have access to a broad, balanced, relevant and appropriately challenging curriculum at each key stage. The programmes of study can, however, be modified by schools to ensure the provision of an inclusive curriculum for all their students.
