Students will follow a Key Stage 3 course which thoroughly prepares students for the upcoming rigours of GCSE Science. Throughout the course, practical-based activities will form the backbone of the lesson content. Students will quickly develop “How Science Works” skills, including planning experiments, taking measurements, handling and displaying data, drawing relevant conclusions and evaluating reliability and accuracy. A well balanced curriculum will ensure regular progress of understanding in key scientific principles, which will then be built upon when moving forward to years 8 and 9. Teaching content is divided into six blocks of three topics, after which there will be a class assessment to ensure continual progress throughout the year.
