Year 7




In Year 7 pupils learn about Science concepts from the National Curriculum and develop their investigative skills.

During the course of the year the following units are explored: Scientific Skills, Cells, Body Systems, Reproduction, Particles, Atoms and Elements, Chemical Reactions, Acids and Alkalis, Forces, Sound, Light and Space.

This Scheme follows the Oxford University Press Activate 1 resources.

Year 8


In Year 8 pupils learn about Science concepts from the National Curriculum and develop their investigative skills.

During the course of the year the following units are explored: Scientific Skills, Health and Lifestyle, Ecosystems, Adaptation and Inheritance, The Periodic Table, Separation Techniques, Metals and Acids, The Earth, Electricity and Magnetism, Energy, Motion and Pressure.

This Scheme follows the Oxford University Press Activate 2 resources.

Year 9


In Year 9 pupils follow a scheme of work that engages them in GCSE level content, in order to build the knowledge and skills that will help them to be successful at GCSE. Content from GCSE Biology, Chemistry and Physics is covered alongside key practical skills.

Year 10


From September 2016 pupils in Y10 Science follow the new GCSE specification for AQA Combined Science Trilogy or GCSE separate Sciences (Set 1).

Pupils following Combined Science study a combination of Biology , Chemistry and Physics units. They also complete required practical activities that are assessed as part of the final exam. This course covers 2 years and is continued in Y11. Exams are sat at the end of Y11 and include 6 x 75 minute exams for : B1, B2, C1, C2, P1 and P2.

Pupils following separate Sciences study a combination of units with extended content for the specialist subject. They also complete required practical activities that are assessed as part of the final exam. This course covers 2 years and is continued in Y11. Exams are sat at the end of Y11 and include 6 x 105 minute exams for : B1, B2, C1, C2, P1 and P2.

Year 11


In year 11, pupils follow the Additional Science Course and continue to study and revise the Core Science course they started in Y10. The Additional Science course consists of 25% coursework and 75% course content. The course content is made up of units of work covered throughout Additional Biology, Additional Chemistry and Additional Physics.

From September 2017 pupils will continue to follow the new GCSE specification, for AQA Combined Science Trilogy or GCSE separate Sciences (Set 1), they began in Y10 as detailed above.

It is our vision to enrich the learning experience of the entire school community
