In Year 7 and Year 8, our aim is to build on the knowledge and understanding of Science gained during Key Stage 2 and provide a firm foundation for further study. Throughout the course, the scientific process is taught, with many opportunities to plan, investigate, record, conclude and evaluate practical investigations, together with the relevant maths skills, and key subject-specific vocabulary that will enable students to be scientifically literate.
As students move through Years 9 to 11 they encounter more advanced knowledge in each of the 3 Sciences and develop a deeper understanding of how Science works in relation to the world around them. Both GCSE Combined Science and GCSE Separate Science routes prepare students for further study and higher education.
"The curriculum makes a significant contribution to students’ outstanding achievement and behaviour because it is well matched to students’ interests and it promotes their personal development effectively. " Ofsted 2014
