Colour groups

In Key Stage 3 (Year 7-9) St Matthew’s sorts the year into colour groups. Each teaching group will be assigned to a colour and you will stay in this group until the end of the year. There are normally 10 colour groups per year, but this year we have 12.

Core Subjects: there are a number of ‘Core Subjects’ that you will study at St Matthew’s these are Maths, English, Science and Religious Education. These are the subjects that you will be taught the most frequent. You will be assigned a teacher for the year in each of these subjects and will stay with them until the end of the school year.
