Key Stage 4 Science - Combined Science

Due to a major overhaul of the GCSE Science Specification we will now offer the Combined Science Course as our primary qualification. This comprises of 6 lessons per week, two in each of the three science disciplines. The revised specification is much more rigorous and will therefore prepare students for further study in science more effectively than previous qualifications did. Students taking the Combined Science Qualification will achieve two GCSE grades. These are obtained by sitting 6 exams at the end of Year 11 with each exam lasting for 1hr and 15mins each.

 

Triple Science

The Triple Science Qualification will be offered as an option to students who meet the entry requirement of a Level 7B at the end of Key Stage 3. Eligibility will be communicated to these individuals through Progress Reports as the year progresses. Students opting for Triple Science will have 9 lessons a week, three in each discipline. This will require students to sacrifice one of their four options to complete. They will therefore select Triple Science as one of the four options, when completing the GCSE Options Form.
