KS3 Curriculum Information

 

Curriculum Model for Key Stage 3

The table below indicates the subjects taught and the number of lessons allocated at Jack Hunt School for each subject. The Jack Hunt School figures are based on fifty hours of taught time per fortnight over an assumed 38 week academic year.  So where a subject gets 2 lessons a week that would be 38 hours in a year.  This model is constantly under review.
