Science - Curriculum Specifications


scienceks4  Key Stage 4


There are a number of different KS4 Science courses offered by the Science department. Students are guided onto the appropriate course after results of tests completed throughout KS3 have been analysed by Science staff. Students will also sit a mock GCSE module exam in the summer term of Year 9 and the results of this will give further indication of the most suitable course. Selection will be carried out in consultation with the Head of Year and a member of the Senior Leadership Team. Attitude to the subject is also taken into consideration. This process is carried out rigorously to ensure students follow the most appropriate course for them, ensuring a better chance of success.
