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)
Students begin the AQA GCSE Science course in Year 9. Science is taught as Biology, Chemistry and Physics. Students following the combined science route will get two GCSE grades at the end of year 11 and those following triple science will get three GCSE grades.
