Key Stage Five at GFS

Key Stage 5

Within Key Stage 5, learners experience a range of different strategies to develop their content knowledge.  Teachers design research tasks to provide learners the opportunity to explore the content independently before applying it in lessons. These include presentations, debates or constructing responses to exam style questions. Learners are encouraged to collaborate with their peers and evaluate the work of others to deepen their understanding of marking instructions and exam expectations.

Meet The Head of Key Stage 5

I am delighted to have taken the role of Head of Key Stage 5 and to have the opportunity to work closely with our dynamic and ambitious Year 12 and 13 students. As a scientist we learn that failure just gives us an opportunity to reflect, adapt and try again and I firmly believe that this attitude should be encouraged in our students. It is my pleasure to work in an environment that supports this both academically and socially.
