Key Stage 3

Curriculum Intent

At Fazakerley High School, we are ambitious for all of our pupils.

It is our fervent belief that the curriculum is central to preparing our young people not only for academic success, but in creating aspirational, responsible and tolerant citizens for the future.

We believe that a strong school curriculum can help address social disadvantage and has the potential to transform the local community.

Below are the concepts which inform and permeate our curriculum:


In Key Stage 3 English, Maths, Science, a Modern Foreign Language, History, Geography and RE are studied as a foundation to the English Baccalaureate. The curriculum is further enriched with Design Technology, Computing, PE, Art, Performing Arts and Personal, Social, Health and Economic Education (PSHEE) which includes Citizenship.

Pupils also take part in an exciting termly programme of ‘Dimension Days’ which encourage pupils to explore and develop their personal, learning and thinking skills thorough a variety of current topical cultural themes or events.
