Key Stage 4

Students will begin studying GCSE Science in Year 9. This will give the opportunity for a richer understanding of the topics to be examined.

Science GCSEs are being reformed to include a greater range of content. Biology, Chemistry and Physics will be studied separately but with a greater emphasis on linking learning.

In addition students will have the opportunity to complete STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) units to give them experience of practical science in real life contexts.
