Science Years 7 - 9
Overview to curriculum
Our ambitious science curriculum promotes learning for understanding for all students of all abilities and aspirations, so that they can investigate and discuss how the natural and man-made world works and the impact and responsibilities we all have. Purposeful practical work is embedded in our curriculum to provide students with insights into the development of scientific thinking. Through practical work, students become increasingly competent in making sense of new information and observations.
Subjects studied in each year:
Particle model of matter

How it is assessed, during the year and end of year?
