Catapult for KS3/11-14s:  resources for lower-attaining secondary students


Boosting your KS3/11-14  lower-attaining students' key skills and confidence to help them catch up

Catapult has been developed to support students who are below expected standards at the start of secondary school. Targeting four key areas and using age-appropriate texts, Catapult provides students with a solid base on which they can develop their vocabulary, reading and writing skills and approach their examinations with confidence.


  • Print and digital resources focus on four key areas - building vocabulary, developing knowledge and understanding, improving reading habits and sustaining writing
  • Guidance for planning engaging and accessible lessons and monitoring progression
  • Plenty of practice opportunities to test student understanding through workbooks and interactive quizzes and assessments
