The purpose of the science curriculum is to develop children’s scientific understanding so they can be scientifically informed citizens and, if they wish, pursue careers in science or that require some scientific understanding. To be scientifically informed requires a broad knowledge of scientific ideas, an appreciation of how experimentation and observation develop this knowledge, and an ability to think rationally and analytically when applying this knowledge in new contexts.
Qualifications can be taken in GCSE Combined Science and also Triple Science (the Triology). In the Sixth Form we offer A-Levels in Biology, Chemistry and Physics.
