Main School



In Science, there is an emphasis on giving each student a sound scientific foundation using a mixture of class discussion, written work and practical investigation. Students will have the opportunity to study a wide range of topics covering Biology, Chemistry and Physics. We are committed to curriculum enrichment, running various schemes throughout the year for different year groups.

Pupils study a combination of biology, chemistry and physics. Practical skills are embedded throughout the course and knowledge is assessed using end of topic examinations. Pupils are awarded a step based on their attainment.

Pupils can study GCSE Trilogy science that is worth 2 GCSEs or take triple science where they will gain individual qualifications in Biology, Chemistry and Physics. All GCSE courses follow the AQA specifications and are linear courses with all examinations carried out at the end of year 11. Practical skills are embedded throughout the course and are assessed within the exam papers. Pupils will be graded from grade 9 - 1.
