We aim to make science stimulating, fun and accessible. Students have access to unique opportunities which allows them a ‘hands on approach’ through our Science Club, Stem Club and numerous ‘Stretch and Challenge’ activities such as visits to universities, external speakers, practical sessions etc.
All year groups follow a modular format. Internal assessments and feedback are given regularly. A high practical and problem solving approach ensures that pupils discover ideas for themselves. Pupils have the opportunity to access moodle (Virtual Learning Environment), Kerboodle (on-line text book) and doddle (an on-line revision tool). Students can study combined science leading to 2 GCSEs or take the separate science route resulting in 3 GCSEs – one in Biology, Chemistry and Physics.
Examining Board: AQA
- Trilogy Combined Science – 2 GCSEs
- Separate Sciences – 3 GCSEs – Biology, Chemistry and Physics.
