Scheme of Work
Key Stage 3
In years 7 and 8, all students study modules in Physics, Chemistry and Biology with a greater emphasis on 'How Science Works' - developing key scientific skills and laying the foundations for further study.
For further details, see the Year 7 and Year 8 individual pages, or go to the DfES Secondary Science Standards site.
Key Stage 4 (GCSE)
In year 9 students complete a transition year into the AQA GCSE Science course. During this year they complete units in Biology, Chemistry and Physics in line with the AQA Combined Synergy Science course. Following their achievements in year 9 students will either follow the combined science route in year 10 and 11 where they will get two GCSE grades or they will follow the triple science route and will get three GCSE grades.
