Key Stage 3

In Years 7 and 8, students are taught in mixed ability tutor groups, while in Year 9 they are taught in banded groups, by ability either the higher 5-7 tier paper or 3-6 paper.  All groups have four periods per fortnight of 100 minutes (13% curriculum time).  The students follow a balanced Science course designed by the faculty, but based around the QCA scheme of work.  The modular organisation of the course allows student attainment to be regularly assessed by end of unit tests.  Year 9 are following the AQA GCSE Science course with a view to opting for AQA Combined Science (Trilogy) or the AQA Separate Sciences in Year 10.

Key Stage 4

Year 10 are following either AQA Combined Science (Trilogy) or AQA Separate Sciences.

Year 11 are following OCR Gateway courses for either Core and Additional Science or the Separate Sciences.  The FLG pages for GCSE Sciences currently have information for the OCR Gateway courses for the benefit of Year 11.  They will be updated for the AQA courses after the GCSE exams.

Beyond the Curriculum

Science Club is run by our Sixth Form students for our lower school students. Sessions run during Autumn and Spring term, on Tuesday lunchtimes, in S2 from 1.20 pm -1.50 pm. We cover a range of activities and offer rewards to students who come on a regular basis. Science club is open to students of all abilities, all you need is a little enthusiasm for the subject and curiosity!

'Go Wild' club takes place every Wednesday lunchtime for students in any year group with an interest in nature. Past activities have included a trip to British Trust for Ornithology, mammal trapping, bird ringing and monitoring our bird boxes.

Student Support Beyond the Classroom

The faculty make extensive use of the school's Learning Gateway to support student's learning beyond the lessons and students can access this in school and at home.  Please click here to go to the Science Subject page on the Learning Gateway.
