Science

Curriculum Overview
CODE:
AQA Combined Science Trilogy / Separate Sciences
COURSE DETAILS:
100% Examination
COURSE SUMMARY:
KEY STAGE 3:

A scheme developed by the department which follows the new National Curriculum. It is divided into separate Biology, Chemistry and Physics topics. After a series of three topics have been taught an assessment is set which examines all three topics.  We want to introduce students into experimental techniques including use of standard laboratory equipment as well as planning their own scientific investigations.  The STEM Club is open to all Key Stage 3 & 4 students for those who have further interests in Science.
