Mrs J Russell – Senior Science Technician
At Key Stage 3 students follow the 2014 National Curriculum supported by the Smart Science Scheme of Work. In year 7 and 8 students have six hours of science lessons over the two week timetable.
In Science lessons students explore current scientific events as well as planning, executing and evaluating a number of investigations. The relevance of Science at a global, national, local and personal level can inspire students to develop enquiring minds and become successful learners who enjoy learning, make progress and achieve.
The investigative and practical nature of the subject provides opportunities for students to explore and learn through various approaches. Science encourages students to think creatively and be resourceful through processing information, reasoning, questioning and evaluating, in order to solve a range of scientific problems.
Students will study:
This course allows all students within out school to leave with a broad and sound understanding of all the sciences, and with over 20 practical experiments included within their assessment they will have the opportunity to develop their investigative and critical thinking skills.
All students will sit their science GCSE at the end of year 11.
6 x 1.15hr papers
Single Sciences allow students to leave with a GCSE grade in Biology, Physics and Chemistry. Different to the Trilogy course, this qualification allows students to study individual sciences in more depth. This course will also allow pupils to develop a wide range of scientific skills as they will be assessed on practical experiments and their knowledge of scientific concepts.
6 X 1.45 hours papers (single sciences)
