Why study science?
Try to think of something that doesn’t have anything to do with science and you can’t; it’s impossible! Science is the study of the world around us, this means that it is literally everything.
KS2 & KS3
All students will focus on science skills, known as both “How Science Works” and “Working Scientifically”. The curriculum is based on the English National Curriculum. This will help support students to achieve accreditation in science during KS4.
In years 10 and 11 all students are aiming to achieve an accreditation in Science and will be working towards achieving a BTEC in Applied Science (L1). The course requires all students to produce a portfolio of evidence to show that they have a knowledge base in science. Year 10 students will have the opportunity to go on and achieve a L2 qualification in year 11.
