Science

Science is taught in well-equipped labs supported by the latest in ICT. Year 7, 8 and 9 students follow a Combined Science course in mixed ability classes for year 7 and then in ability bands in year 8 and above so that lessons can best meet the needs of individual students. Students in years 7,8 & 9 follow a course based around the National Curriculum which makes use of modern resources and places a great emphasis on "Working Scientifically". All year 10 students will start their GCSE courses at the beginning of year 10 and will follow the Edexcel GCSE (9-1) Combined Science course which will lead to the award of two GCSE grades. Some students are following the triple science route of Biology, Chemistry and Physics. Each course involves a number of Core Practicals, which along with the rest of the course will be formally examined at the end of year 11. All KS4 schemes make good use of excellent, electronic resources as well as more traditional ways of working.
