Upper School Science.
At KS3 Pupils follow the National Curriculum Scheme of Work. Topics are highlighted in individual class topic webs.
We have introduced Entry Level Science at Year 9. This leads to a Science qualification before students embark on the BTEC course.
At KS4 Pupils complete the BTEC level 1-2 First Award in Principles of Applied Science covering modules as follows:-
Modules 2, 3 and 4 are assignment based, building an assessed portfolio of learning.
Module 1 is covered across the 2 year program and is assessed by means of an external examination.
NEWS: We have applied to the Woodland Trust for a mixture of free trees which we should receive for planting in March. Staff and pupils will help to plant these saplings. It is hoped the different species of trees requested will enhance our existing woodland/wild area.
