Year 7 and 8
Students in science are taught across the disciplines of Biology, Chemistry and Physics by well qualified, specialist teachers. The main focus of KS3 is to fully prepare students with the knowledge and skills required to excel during their GCSEs. Fundamental topics and skills are introduced in Year 7 and then built upon into Year 8 and part of Year 9. There is a strong emphasis on learning for intrinsic pleasure. Students are encouraged to enquire, to discuss and question the how’s and why’s of the world around us and beyond. Content is delivered in clearly defined topics with a strong emphasis on practical work. Students are assessed regularly, in formative and summative testing and also throughout lessons.
