 “Across both Key Stages, an imaginative and stimulating curriculum is skillfully designed to match the full range of students needs and to ensure highly effective continuity and progression in their learning” 

 

Year 7 and 8 close open

 Curriculum Overview Year 7     Curriculum Overview Year 8 

 Science in Year 7 and 8 is taught to make our students excited and curious about everything they see around them. We want our pupils to ask questions and explore the natural phenomenons that they experience in their lives. We have a very hands on approach to Science.

Pupils are taught how to be safe in the laboratory and how to carry out practical work. From day one they will be making predictions, designing experiments to test hypothesis, making observations, collecting and handling data, making conclusions and evaluating their work.

We prepare out students for GCSE Science by teaching the fundamentals of Science from Year 7 and revisiting them throughout Year 8  building on these solid foundations.

By the end of Year 7 and 8 they should have all of the tools to be successful at GCSE.
