KS3 – Science
The Science course in Years 7 to 9 is fully integrated. Whilst conforming to the National Curriculum requirements at Key Stage 3, we also take several topics further to give greater breadth and relevance.
Starting in Year 7, pupils are given some detail of all human body systems, chemical processes, techniques, movement, forces and heating. By the end of Year 9, pupils will have gained a good appreciation of the fundamental concepts behind cell biochemistry, the environment, chemical reactions, atomic structure, electricity, electronics, energy, materials, light and sound. The course has been organised in a highly sequential form with one lesson following on from the other and topics revisited in later years to a greater depth.
