KS3 & KS4 Science:
Science lessons in upper school are delivered by Miss Ainscough, a subject specialist in Science, you can find out about some of the topics we are studying this term in the relevant year group section below.
Year 7, 8 and 9 pupils cover topics from the Oxford Smart Activate scheme of work, supported by Kerboodle.
Year 10-11 pupils cover content for the BTEC Level 2 Award in Principles of Applied Science, a vocational course, more details can be found at
We start the new year learning about all of the health and safety in the laboratory and developing our skills for working scientifically.
Our first topic of the autumn term is working scientifically, further developing those skills we learnt in year 7. We will then move onto the periodic table.
Starting with a recap of atomic structure, then learning all about isotopes and relative atomic mass, a cross curricular topic which will require a lot of maths skills.
Delving into biology topics, starting with DNA & chromosomes linking nicely into inheritance and inheritance patterns.
Continuing with our physics work, looking at how electricity is transmitted to our homes and industries.
Links to reading lists (by key stage and age) can be found at the top of the science homepage. All books are available to purchase from Amazon.
