“Inspiring a love of learning”

‘The lessons and the teachers are really good and I’ve made so many more friends since starting the sixth form’ Emily, Year 12

‘I’ve been able to achieve a level of independence but still rely on the support of staff I know when I’ve needed it’ Beth, Year 13

‘To begin with I was nervous about meeting new people but everyone has been welcoming. The subjects I chose are right for me and the teachers are helpful. Coming here was the right decision’ A new student who started in Yr 12

“I taught in several schools and I was only blessed with sons but I firmly believe that if I had a daughter I would want her to go to this school because I am aware at first hand of the dedication of all of its staff to the care and education of the girls. This school does realise that it is precious cargo that it carries.” A former teacher

The Key Stage 4 Science courses offered to pupils aim to develop their interest in, and enthusiasm for, Science. They are also designed to equip pupils with the scientific skills, knowledge and understanding of how science works and its essential role in society.

From September students will study for 3 separate Science GCSEs (triple award): Biology, Chemistry and Physics. The triple award broadens the students’ understanding of Science at KS4, and give them any significant advantage for AS and A2 courses. There are two tiers of assessment: Foundation (G-C) and Higher (D-A*).

There is also an Investigative Skills Assignment worth 25% which is externally set but internally assessed known as the Science Centre-Assessed Unit for each of the 3 separate Sciences. The centre-assessed unit is not tiered.

Students will be taught 2 hours a week in Biology, Chemistry and Physics (6 hours of Science a week).

We anticipate that many of our students will go on to study Biology, Chemistry or Physics at Advanced level and to pursue careers in a wide variety of areas, for example environmental study, medicine, veterinary science, engineering, agriculture and teaching.
