In Science students are taught in tutor groups and the course will cover 6 key topics, each being studied over a single half term. The topics are context based and aim to equip students with an adequate understanding of how scientists and science work in the real world.
The topics build students' curiosity about phenomena in the world around them and offer opportunities to find explanations. We have also planned the topics so that they maintain students' enthusiasm and motivation about science enabling them to achieve above and beyond what they would normally be expected to.
- Solids, liquids and gases and separating techniques
- Environment and variation
- Cells and reproduction
- Electricity and magnetism
- Energy and efficiency
- Forces and space
