Science is a compulsory subject at GCSE but we offer two different routes.
This is the AQA Trilogy Dual Award course which is a combined science course which results in two GCSE grades at the end of year 11.

This is the AQA Triple Award course which is the three separate science course resulting in a GCSE in Biology, Chemistry and Physics at the end of Y11.
Students who are in set 1 or 2 by the end of Y9 will usually follow the triple award route .
