SCIENCE KS3 COURSE OVERVIEW
In science lessons we aim to exploit our students’ natural curiosity about the world around them to develop problem solving and practical skills through a balanced science curriculum. We offer a two year KS3 programme of study in years 7 and 8. A variety of science topics are taught including Cells, Forces and Particles allowing students to progress confidently to their GCSE studies. At KS4 we challenge them to acquire the knowledge and skills needed to obtain up to 3 GCSE awards at Key Stage 4.
The students are offered a choice of Triple Award or Additional Science at GCSE as well as BTEC Science for those who prefer a more practical based course. All students complete a Core GCSE qualification in year 9/10 and then either go on to complete Additional or Triple Award in year 11. We are proud that our curriculum includes the academic option of separate sciences. This allows students to progress to study separate sciences post 16
