In Years 7 and 8 all students follow a programme of study that is based upon the National curriculum. The course is designed to be activity and practical based to make the learning both relevant and fun. Students learn how to conduct practical work safely and methodically whilst investigating scientific principles then forming their own conclusions. Students develop the necessary skills and scientific understanding to prepare them for their Science GCSEs in KS4.

In preparation for GCSE in Year 10 all of the topics in Years 7 and 8 are developed further in Year 9. .
Students opt to study either combinations of science subjects at A-Level or BTEC Applied Science. For detail of the A-Level subjects please see the relevant science page (biology/chemistry/physics).
We offer BTEC Level 3 National Diploma Applied Science. The course is equivalent to 2 A-Levels. Applied Science deepens students understanding of key concepts in biology, chemistry and physics. It has a strong focus on the applications of these concepts in industry and medicine. The course prepare students for further study and careers in the Applied Science sector.
