Science – Key Stage 3

The Science course at Key Stage 3 provides students with the necessary skills and knowledge to access the Trilogy and Separate Science courses in Key Stage 4. Over 2 years students study 12 different topics covering aspects of Biology, Chemistry and Physics. Topics focus on real life applications of Science and the benefit of having a firm understanding of scientific concepts.
