Inspiring a love of learning

“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.

In KS4 pupils will study Biology, Chemistry and Physics, working towards either Combined Science GCSE (2 GCSEs awarded) or Triple Science GCSE (3 GCSEs awarded). Pupils follow the AQA GCSE specification. At the end of year 11 they will sit a total of 6 examinations in science (2 biology, 2 chemistry & 2 physics), at either higher or foundation tiers. This new specification awards grades on the new Grade 9-1 system.

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

The new GCSE has no coursework element, instead, for each subject there are a series of ‘Required Practical’ activities, specifically set out by the exam board to develop pupils’ practical skills and knowledge. These are embedded into teaching schedules and pupils are examined on this, along with other course knowledge in their final year 11 examinations.

We anticipate that many of our pupils 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.
