Year 8

Condensed Key Stage 3 (academic year 2017-18 only)
Banbury Academy offers the full range of teaching required by the National Curriculum. At Key Stage 3 (Years 7 and 8) all students cover the programme of study which prepares them for progression to GCSE, BTEC or other accredited courses at Key Stage 4 (Years 9, 10 and 11).

Academic Year 2018-19
We have made the decision to move to a ‘3-year KS3 + 2-year KS4’ curriculum structure, starting in September 2018. This means that current Year 8 students will not be making their KS4 guided choices this year. They will have the opportunity to study a pre-GCSE programme for an extra year before making this crucial decision. Read the full Changes to Options Letter to parents here.
