The course is designed to give opportunities to all students to enable them to meet their aspirations while learning about many interesting aspects of science.
Combined Science Year 9 students will be taught for 4 periods per week. Each period lasts 50 minutes. Individual pupil performance and progress will be consistently and closely monitored and all decisions made in relation to courses and examination entries will be done so with the best interests of students, their potential and best grade outcomes and future aspirations in mind.
The Key Stage 4 Science will provide an essential part of all of our students’ education and qualifications.
Students opting to take GCSE Biology, Chemistry and Physics (Triple Science) will study all 3 sciences as discrete subjects. The three will be delivered with intention of achieving the highest grade possible for every individual and students will receive an additional 3 science lessons every week.These courses will provide stretch and challenge with the opportunity to study all 3 sciences in depth.
