Key Stage 3
In years 7, 8 and 9 all students study modules in Physics, Chemistry and Biology with an emphasis on 'How Science Works' - developing key scientific skills and laying the foundations for further study.
For further details, see the Year 7, 8 and 9 individual pages, or go to the DfES Secondary Science Standards site.
Key Stage 4 (GCSE)
During year 9 students have the opportunity to select to do triple science as an option. This will give them more time to study science and they will learn more in depth knowledge about Biology, Chemistry and Physics. Students who opt to do triple science will receive 3 GCSEs in science (one in each discipline). Students who do not choose to do triple science will complete the combined science course where they will get 2 GCSEs across all disciplines.
