We aim to enthuse and ignite students' interest in science. Within lessons, students are given opportunities to develop practical skills desired by universities and industry. 

Each year students study a range of topics from Biology, Chemistry and Physics. 

Year 7:

During year 7 students study cells, tissues and organs and reproduction and variation in Biology. In Chemistry students cover particles and chemical reactions. In physics students study forces and motion and energy.

Year 9:

Students begin their preparations for GCSEs. Key ideas are covered in each of the sciences to provide students with an excellent foundation in the transition to their GCSEs. Topics include cells, organelles and key cellular processes in Biology. Chemistry covers atomic structure, elements, mixtures and compounds and chemical reactions. Physics involves matter, waves and radiation.

All students have to study Science at GCSE. Students will study the OCR Gateway courses. All students will study the same content in Biology, Chemistry and Physics, with some additional content covered if taking separate sciences. Based on their performance during Key Stage 4 students’ teachers will decide whether to enter them for combined science (2 GCSEs) or the separate sciences; Biology, Chemistry and Physics (3 GCSEs).

All assessment is terminal taking place at the end of year 11. Students will be awarded grades on the new 9-1 grading system (where 9 is the highest grade).
