Key Stage 3

Key Stage 3:

At iBOS, we believe that the curriculum is what gives a school its purpose, it is what drives the learning experience of all of the young people in our care, what Dylan William called “the lived experience” of our students. We combine our aspiration for students to achieve outstanding academic progress with a focus on developing the skills for our pupils to be lifelong learners.

Our online school has a broad, rich and deep curriculum that stretches and challenges each and every one of our students. The curriculum we offer inspires students to have a love of learning that will follow them throughout their life, within a range of subjects and courses, helping students gain invaluable knowledge, understanding and skills in all aspects of their education. This includes how we prepare students for life in modern day Britain and British values, alongside linguistic, mathematical, scientific, technical, human, social, physical and artistic learning.
