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

A welcome from the science department at Beverley High School The science team's main aim is to create a rich and engaging learning environment, encouraging all our pupils, regardless of ability or background to develop into enthusiastic and scientifically literate young people. Through delivering challenging lessons that link scientific ideas and concepts to real world situations we aim to develop in our pupils inquisitive and creative minds and also problem-solving and communication skills that can be applied across all disciplines for learning and will prepare our pupils well for the future.

At Key Stage 3 all classes are taught in their form groups which are mixed ability. They will cover topics within Biology, Chemistry and Physics and will develop skills of scientific enquiry throughout. Key scientific concepts in-line with the National Curriculum are introduced and developed as described below;

  1. Life Processes and Living Things – Pupils learn the difference between animal and plant cells and the different functions of different cells. They learn the various systems of the human body and how they interact. This topic also includes the needs and processes of green plants, ideas about classification and variation and how animals adapt to their environment.
  2. Materials and Their Properties – Pupils learn how to differentiate between solids, liquids and gases and how to classify and identify elements, compounds and mixtures. They learn the differences between physical and chemical changes and how geological changes occur. Metals and their reactions are also taught at KS3.
  3. Physical Processes – This unit includes electricity and magnetism and light and sound. Pupils become more familiar with the forces around them and how they impact on their everyday life. They also have the chance to study the solar system.
