From year 9, pupils are taught GCSE curriculum. Most of our pupils read Combined Science syllabus, with an exceptional few studying triple Science. A significant proportion of pupils studying triple further study A-level Sciences.

Start of KS4 is an opportune time for pupils to expand their scientific knowledge. They conduct more than 24 practical activities to put their theory into practice. Teachers regularly mark and assess pupil work to provide them with developmental feedback. Teachers dedicate their spare time to further support pupils through after school and Saturday revision sessions. 

Pupils study AQA syllabus, specification for which can be found here


The curriculum is designed to stimulate pupil’s curiosity and make them well-rounded individuals. Pupils also have the opportunity of completing work experience in St. George’s university, attend workshops on engineering and medicine and attend trips allowing them to expand their knowledge outside of classrooms.
