Overview

Science has something to offer everyone, and that everyone needs some level of relevant scientific

understanding. This course promotes a wide range of topics and skills which you will be able to use

throughout your life to make important scientific/medical decisions and can also prepare you for

further science studies. Over the two years the course is delivered by three different teachers teaching

you the three different sciences, Biology, Chemistry and Physics. There will be 6 exams at the end of

Year 11 and the course will be worth 2 GCSE’s.
