The science department is comprised of eleven teaching staff and three technicians all working collaboratively to ensure students achieve their full potential.

Students are encouraged to investigate the world around them and question why things happen.
Students enjoy the practical nature of the subject and are encouraged to practise their scientific skills and techniques.

The department makes sure that all students have a good knowledge and understanding of science through motivational, fun and engaging lessons.

Key stage 5.

At key stage 5 we offer AS and A level biology (7401, 7402), chemistry (7404, 7405) and physics (7407, 7408).
Students have the option of completing the AS level in the first year. During this year students will complete at least six practicals and will have 2 assessments. The practical aspect of the course will not count towards their final grade but will be questioned in the end of year exams.

In the second year students will need to complete a further 6 practicals and complete 3 exams to make up their final A level grade.

Students who pass the 12 practicals will require a “pass” in the practical aspect of the course but this will not affect their grade. However, the practicals which students have completed may be assessed in the end of year exams.
