Programme of Study – Science
The Key Stage 3 Science curriculum is clearly divided into Biology, Chemistry and Physics units and all students will follow a balanced curriculum. As well as developing our students’ knowledge and understanding of scientific theory, our curriculum has integrated working scientifically with a clear focus on literacy and communication that seeks to develop students’ confidence in articulating their ideas.
Schemes of work and resources have been developed by specialist teachers within the department and are tailored to meet the needs of all students to ensure each child makes expected levels of progress.
In Year 9, the curriculum increases in difficulty as we stretch the students using discovery-led learning on transitional topics, giving them the best head start before entering their GCSE curriculum in Key Stage 4.
Science club is run every week – carry out fun science experiments or sign up for a CREST Award
