Science

Year 7 and 8

We deliver the Keystage 3 (KS3) programme of study to students in form groups. Our schemes of work are written in house but based on the Activate resources from Oxford University Press.

All students have access to digital texts and other resources via their Kerboodle logins. These are issued during the first weeks of the autumn term.

Students are assessed through regular mini tests and longer written answers which are completed as homework. Termly tests are also carried out in class.

Support with homework is available during Monday lunchtime in S10.
