Overview

For students who have a keen interest in Science, we offer Biology, Chemistry and Physics as

separate subjects. Those students who choose Triple Science, consisting of a GCSE in each in

Biology, Chemistry and Physics, study the same content as Double Science and also an additional

module in each of the three sciences.

We follow the AQA Specification, and the content covered and the skills developed ensure our

students are particularly well-prepared for any of the A Level science subjects. To be eligible for

this course, we would expect students to attain a Level 6/7 in their end of KS3 Teacher

Assessment. This is an entry requirement for this course.

Each of the three Sciences will be assessed with two 1 hour 45 minute papers taken at the end

of Year 11, each worth 50% of the grade.

Costs

£15 revision guides

Trips

We offer many academic extra-curricular opportunities, such as hosting lectures, workshops and

taking our students to other schools and institutions to gain first-hand experience of aspects of

science of interest to the students.
