KS3

Science is taught with the underlying principle that the international scientific community is required to provide the answers to many of societies problems eg the global energy, food and medical crisis.

The Key Stage 3 science curriculum has been written to provide the essential content and skills needed to succeed at GCSE, as well as developing skills that are essential in all aspects of life, such as logical thinking and problem solving. Where-ever possible content is taught within a framework of real-life applications, incorporating science in the news, scientific developments and links to possible careers.

Students follow an in-house scheme of work across years 7-9, it is both ambitious and aspirational, covering all the content required by the National Curriculum and beyond. We encourage an investigation led, skills-based approach to learning and seek to secure ambitious rates of progress for students.
