Key Stage 3 (Years 7, 8 and 9) 

Students follow all aspects of the National Curriculum covering topics such as classification, forces, acids and bases, reproduction, electricity and atomic structure. Students are encouraged to think for themselves, but they are fully supported in developing an understanding of the 'scientific method'. Science is assessed through the development of Enquiry Skills and supports the Literacy and Numeracy Framework.
