Science

In Science, pupils are taught in Form groups in Years 7 & 8 of Key Stage 3. In Year 9 they are in five smaller mixed ability groups. In Years 10 and 11 pupils are taught in four or five sets according to ability. Two or three sets will work towards two GCSE courses (Science and Additional Science). The other sets have the opportunity to pursue the individual sciences (Biology, Chemistry & Physics) to GCSE.

Group sizes at Key Stage 3 (Year 7-9, age 11-13 years) and KS4 are on average sixteen in number, and typically eight at AS/A Level.

The department enjoys five designated Science laboratories. Interactive whiteboards and other technologies are available within the department.

Key Stage 3

Years 7 & 8 pupils are following the Science Works course by Oxford University Press. The course covers the new KS3 National Curriculum in Years 7 & 8. This is under review for September 2015.

Key Stage 4

GCSE Science is started in Year 9. This is not externally examined in this year. Pupils who do well enough in the internal exams continue on the separate science path obtaining GCSEs in Biology, Chemistry and Physics in Year 11. The other pupils repeat and consolidate the Year 9 work in Year 10 and sit two GCSEs in Science and Additional Science. The OCR Gateway suite of specifications is used throughout this Key Stage.

Key Stage 5

AS and A Levels are offered in Biology, Chemistry and Physics.
