The Science Faculty at George Pindar School seeks to promote engagement, enjoyment and excellence in science learning. To this end, our curriculum is designed:
Key Stage 3 Science
Students learn about aspects of Biology, Chemistry and Physics to widen their experience of the world, including environmental issues, ecology and technological developments. They will have the opportunity to develop their understanding of the scientific method through a range of practical activities and discussions and they will start to develop the skills required to be successful at GCSE.
Key Stage 4 Science
GCSE Combined Science: Trilogy
Double Award (worth two GCSEs)
Exam Board: AQA: Combined Science: Trilogy
Science is vital to understand how the world around us works. The skills developed in Science link into many other curriculum subjects.
Students will develop practical, observational and analytical skills throughout the different topics that cover Biology, Chemistry and Physics.
Topic areas include animal and plant biology, carbon chemistry, the periodic table, application of forces and the electromagnetic spectrum amongst many others. There is a strong emphasis on practical science in this course and students will complete a range of required experiments.
GCSE Separate Science
Exam Board: AQA
Students may choose Separate Sciences as one of their options subjects.
In Separate Sciences, students have the opportunity to study Biology, Chemistry and Physics in greater depth.
For each branch of science, a series of practical skills will be examined in addition to the theory content. At the end of the course, students will be awarded a separate GCSE grade for each of the separate sciences, giving three grades in total. The separate sciences are ideal preparation for the study of the separate sciences at A Level.
Students require a good level of numeracy and literacy to access the higher-level material on the course.
