Curriculum intent 

To give students an engaging and challenging learning experience by delivering a diverse, modern curriculum that enables all learners to progress and reflect on their learning. By the end of Year 11 we would expect students to demonstrate the following in their science work:

  • A comprehensive subject knowledge of Biology, Chemistry and Physics
  • Correct application of core subject knowledge to both familiar and unfamiliar contexts using accurate scientific terminology 
  • Use a range of mathematical skills to perform complex scientific calculations
  • Critically analyse qualitative and quantitative data to draw logical, well-evidenced conclusions 
  • Critically evaluate and refine methodologies, and judge the validity of scientific conclusions

Every single person who works at the school contributes to who I am. It truly is a special place where we are all one big family.
