Key Stage 3

Welcome to Key Stage 3 at Sir John Hunt Community Sports College and the start of the secondary learning experience. Our vision is for every student to realise their potential and, to make that happen, we insist on high expectations of attendance and punctuality, conduct and attitude to learning.

We encourage our students to challenge themselves, to develop new skills and knowledge and to become confident, independent learners. We also encourage them to make the most of the many opportunities on offer; we offer a wide range of extra-curricular clubs and activities and we also offer the Key Stage 3 Learning Club after school every day, where students can be supported to complete homework.

Key Stage 3 is the first stage of a seven year journey and, central to everything we do, is the belief that every student has potential and we look forward to working with parents and carers to unlock the potential of every young person at Sir John Hunt.

You may be aware that we’re using Seneca Learning to support our students’ digital learning.

Seneca offers high-quality free online learning courses for students to study from a computer, tablet or phone.

Seneca also provides free parent accounts. Their free parent accounts allow you to track your child’s learning and help make conversations about school and learning easier.

Seneca’s parent accounts also allow you to learn alongside your child if you wish to do so. This might be helpful in supporting you to work with your child on areas of their school work that you are less familiar with.

You can sign up for a free Seneca parent account here:

Seneca have made this handy 2 minute video to help you get started.

Or you can read how to get your free account if you’d prefer.

If you have any questions about how Seneca works, you can get support from the Seneca team using the live chat on their website or you can email them at

I hope you find Seneca’s free parent account useful!
