Science

WE ARE LIVING IN AN INCREASINGLY SCIENTIFIC AND TECHNOLOGICAL SOCIETY, SO A GOOD UNDERSTANDING AND KNOWLEDGE OF SCIENCE IS ESSENTIAL.

Enrichment

In addition to the many interesting activities taking place during lessons, an extra activity is organised for each Year group:

Year 7 students experience a mobile planetarium which visits the school.

Year 8 students are treated to the Science Museum day of activities, based around space travel.

Year 9 students take part in a Forensics day.

Science is housed in eight laboratories, one ICT suite and two preparation areas.

The National Curriculum for Science controls what we - and all other state schools - teach to students in the compulsory years of schooling. The way we organise the teaching is as follows:

KS3

Key Stage 3

In Years 7 and 8, Science is taught as a single subject, with the girls assigned to streamed groups which will allow them to work at a pace suitable to their ability.

Units:

Skills

Cells

Reproduction

Digestion

Microbes

Acids and Alkalis

Solids liquids and gases

Solutions

Energy Resources

Magnets

Forces

Solar System

KS4

YEAR 9

Cell biology

Infectious diseases

Atomic structure and Periodic Table

Bonding and Structure

Electricity

Key Stage 4

Most girls follow a course in Double Science, which leads to two Science GCSE grades. These courses contain equal amounts of Physics, Chemistry and Biology which have been co-ordinated so as to provide an all-round ‘balanced’ Science education. Girls will sit externally-set examinations at the end of year 11.

We also offer a triple science GCSE course for a group of girls who have shown they have a particular aptitude for Science, and are likely to wish to pursue a scientific career.
