Science
Extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence.
Carl Sagan

When studying Science at Key Stage 3, students are encouraged to be creative; to question; to investigate; to debate topical issues that will affect their lives in the future.

Studying Science at this level should be fun with a strong emphasis on practical work and developing a student’s interest in wanting to know more about the world around them.  We aim to inspire and nurture student’s interests in the three main areas of biology, chemistry and physics, and believe we do just that with a team of dedicated and passionate staff.

Students will study Science with one teacher for the entire year.  Teaching spaces are modern and bright.  They are flexible in that they are split between a “dry” area for discussion and learning theory, and a “wet” area for the myriad of practical work that students do at Key Stage 3.  They will be encouraged to use learning technologies at all opportunities to record their findings, observations and thoughts on the concepts being studied. 

During Year 9 as part of the IGCSE options process, students select Science (Double Award), covering Biology, Physics and Chemistry and worth two IGCSEs OR Separate Science (Accelerated Course) which is equivalent three IGCSEs in Biology, Physics and Chemistry.
