Overview of Girls’ School Key Stage 3 – Years 7 – 9

KEY STAGE 3 (age 11 – 14)

YEARS 7 to 9

While every key stage is special and challenging in its own way, the Key Stage 3 age range (11-14 years), involves a fresh start in which the pupils cease to be the oldest pupils in a home-room teaching system and become the youngest pupils in a new system where they move from one specialist teaching room to another to receive their education.
This change is a challenge for many pupils and requires major development in their personal organisational skills, marking another step towards adulthood.

The Role of the School at Key Stage 3 is:

  • To develop skills and knowledge for lifelong learning
  • To introduce to a wide range of subjects and studies
  • To create independent, self-disciplined and self-aware young ladies
  • To lay the foundations for success at I/GCSE (Year 10 and 11) and beyond.

At Sherborne Qatar School for Girls we believe that every child should be able to reach their full academic potential through high quality teaching, a disciplined and positive learning environment, and a strong system of academic and pastoral support.

Academic support is provided by Subject Teachers, Key Stage Leaders and the Headmistress and all work closely with form tutors to ensure that pupils are given the opportunity to achieve academically, to the best of their ability.

Subjects taught in Key Stage 3 include:


  • English (Language and Literature)
  • Music & Drama
  • Mathematics
  • STEM and Enquiry based learning
  • Science
  • Physical Education / Sport
  • Arabic (First and Second Language)
  • Personal, Social & Health Education
  • Islamic Studies / World Studies
  • ICT and Computer Studies
  • Qatar History
  • History
  • Geography
  • Art.

We aim to keep families informed of their children’s academic progress and involved in the school as much as possible.
