Science Department Overview

During Key Stage 3 students study Biology, Chemistry and Physics as well as developing their investigative skills to prepare them for GCSE Sciences.  Our philosophy is very much students trying things out for themselves through practical science.  Students have three one hour science lessons in KS3 and five one hour lessons in Key Stage 4.  At Key Stage 4, most students study the AQA Trilogy Specification and although Triple Science is also offered as an option and students study an additional two hours per week if they select this option.  We offer A-level Biology, Chemistry and Physics, again studying AQA specifications.
