Key Stage 4

Students begin studying their dual-award GCSE science in year 9. This allows students time to come to grips with an ever expanding subject content and develop important exam skills. Students are taught in rotation with subject specialists in Biology, Chemistry and Physics to ensure they are receiving the highest quality of learning possible, and are able to explore their developing interests in each scientific discipline with relevant support.

The science department is committed to providing students with opportunities to complete practical learning and to engage in science through the application of relatable and exciting contexts.
