Students follow the National Curriculum. KS3 is taught in the first two Years, Years 7 and 8. Science is taught in form groups in six lessons per fortnight. The classes all follow topics in Biology, Chemistry and Physics. Students have one CASE lesson a fortnight (Cognitive Acceleration Through Science Education) which is designed to improve thinking skills and lead to higher attainment. Learning is supported by hands on practical work, and students are encouraged to develop independent learning skills. A range of resources are available to learners for homework and extension activities.
