What will I be studying?

Science is vital to understand how the world around us works. The skills developed in Science link into many other curriculum subjects. Students will develop practical, observational and analytical skills throughout the different topics that cover Biology, Chemistry and Physics. Topic areas include animal and plant biology, carbon chemistry, the periodic table, application of forces and the electromagnetic spectrum amongst many others. There is a strong emphasis on practical science in this course and students will complete a range of required experiments.

What can I do after wards?

The qualification will award two GCSE grades. Students achieving grade 5 or above will be able to access A Level Biology, Chemistry or Physics courses or the equivalent in Further Education establishments. There are two papers available Higher and Foundation. Higher level students can gain grades 4–9 and Foundation level students can gain grades 1–5.

“Look up at the stars and not down at your feet. Try to make sense of what you see, and wonder about what makes the universe exist. Be curious.”
