Key Stage 3
The science course at Key Stage 3 provides students with the necessary skills and knowledge to access the Science GCSE course in Key Stage 4. Students cover the key stage 3 programme of study through 12 different topics, which cover all aspects of Biology, Chemistry and Physics.
Each topic is focused around real-life applications of science to show students examples of the types of jobs that benefit from having a good understanding of the subject.
