Key Stage 3 & Key Stage 4 Science



  • Students begin GCSE Science in Year 9 with 4 hours a week of Science. In Year 10 and Year 11 they have 5 hours a week, and may also be able to have extra one-hour sessions a week in Year 11 if their timetable allows.

  • Initially all students in Year 9 and 10 follow the AQA Combined Science: Trilogy course, which will enable them achieve a Double Award in Science
  • Triple Science is available to students and students will get three separate GCSE grades for this

  • All GCSEs are now linear rather than modular. This means all exams will take place at the end of the course. There will be no controlled assessment, although practical lessons will help you answer questions in the exams.
