Science

Years 7 & 8    

Students are set after the first term in Year 7 and are taught in half-year groups until Year 9. The curriculum is mapped based on the four ability profiles and students are taught the skill and knowledge needed to start the GCSE in Year 9. To supplement lessons students have access to online lessons, resources and assessments through Kerboodle.com.

Years 9, 10 & 11    

All students start the core AQA 1-9 GCSE in Year 9. The science department offers two options for studying science at GCSE level: students can either study a combined science course or study three separate science GCSE courses in Biology, Chemistry and Physics.

The science curriculum aims to develop the scientific knowledge and skills required for students to understand science in the news and to make informed decisions about everyday issues they will encounter.

A science qualification can lead to employment at all levels in such diverse careers as medicine, engineering, pharmaceuticals and agriculture.
