Our Science curriculum provides the foundations for understanding the world through the specific disciplines of biology, chemistry and physics. Science has changed our lives and is vital to the world’s future prosperity, and all students are taught essential aspects of the knowledge, methods, processes and uses of science. Through building up a body of key foundational knowledge and concepts, students are encouraged to recognise the power of rational explanation and develop a sense of excitement and curiosity about natural phenomena. The curriculum is also designed to teach acceptance and engagement with the fundamental British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs.
All pupils have the opportunity to purchase a Revision Guide from school. Past papers can be found at www.aqa.org.uk. BBC.co.uk/bitesize contains online support for Years 7 through to Year 11. Revision sessions are offered to Year 11 as per the school revision timetable.
Science is set on a weekly basis as an extension of the curriculum.
