Science

Science in Years 7 to 8 is fully integrated, covering Chemistry, Biology and Physics. Whenever possible, work is of a practical nature in our purpose-built labs. We encourage students to build their skills with observation, investigation and enquiry using a range of contexts. Whilst conforming to the National Curriculum requirements at Key Stage 3, we do take some topics further to give greater breadth and relevance and to stretch and challenge our students.

Year 9 students build the foundations for GCSE by studying the underpinning concepts and developing their analytical skills further in preparation for Years 10 and 11. Students follow the AQA Combined Science Trilogy syllabus. The study of GCSE Chemistry, Biology and Physics as separate sciences is also available.

We aim to develop students’ interest and understanding of Science and the world around them and we take pride in the number of past students who go on to study a science at college and then university.
