Our intent is to design a Science curriculum that challenges all students. The resulting schemes of learning are broad and balanced, coherently planned and sequenced and have been successfully adapted for students with special educational needs and/or disabilities. Our schemes of learning are differentiated to ensure they are ambitious for all students, regardless of their background or prior learning. They build on knowledge and skills acquired at KS2 and prepare students for the challenges of KS5.


Throughout KS3 and into KS4 our students will: ​

  • develop scientific knowledge and conceptual understanding through the specific disciplines of biology, chemistry and physics. 

  • develop understanding of the nature, processes and methods of science through different types of science enquiries that help them to answer scientific questions about the world around them. 

  • develop the scientific knowledge required to understand the uses and implications of science, today and for the future. 

  • develop the practical knowledge and skills required to carry out scientific enquiries. 

  • become confident communicators, both in writing and speaking.
