Students study Science throughout Year 7, 8, and 9 (until November of the academic year). Within Year 9 (the foundation curriculum year), students either continue to study Triple Science or Combined Science.
KS3 - year 7, 8, & 9
Our Secondary KS3 Science has an engaging curriculum that deepens pupils’ knowledge of Science. This begins with year 7 with the introduction of Science based practical sessions, which develop the young mind to be inquisitive and curious on how Science works in everyday life. The skills that pupils develop help them to interpret and analyse scientific concepts to draw conclusions on key scientific concepts. Moving from year 7 to year 8 pupils delve deeper into the scientific understanding of Science to develop breadth and depth of key scientific concepts.
