Science

Welcome to the Science Department

We aim to inspire the next generation of scientists through capturing the imagination and natural curiosity of our students. Our well-equipped labs are perfect for a multitude of experiments throughout Biology, Chemistry and Physics. We promote independent learning through the use of revision guides, brainscape revision cards and Revision Monkey YouTube videos. Results in the science department are well above National average with 75% of pupils achieving at least 2 GCSE grades at 9-4 in 2018.

Key Stage 3 (Years 7 and 8)

The Key Stage 3 course is taught throughout Year 7 and Year 8. Pupils are taught a range of topics from Biology, Chemistry and Physics. More information on these topics can be found on our FROG department site.

Key Stage 4 (Years 9-11)

GCSE is taught from Year 9 through to Year 11. Year 9 pupils begin the year following a “GCSE READY” course which outlines the skills that pupils need to achieve their full potential at GCSE. Following this, they will be taught the Biology, Chemistry and Physics GCSE courses following the AQA specification. Pupils currently in Year 9 will take the Separate Science course and will achieve 3 GCSEs in Science (Biology, Chemistry and Physics). Pupils currently in Year 10 and 11 will either take the Separate Science course awarding 3 GCSEs, or, the Combined Science course awarding 2 GCSEs.
