Science is intrinsically fascinating and inspiring, and while the inquisitiveness of the young lends itself naturally to scientific study and endeavour, nobody ever really loses the desire to know more about the workings of the world around them. Whether you consider yourself a scientist or not, there is no doubting that science touches every part of your life from the alarm clock that wakes you up in the morning to the toothpaste you use before bed and, of course, the way you are able to read this right now.

Our Vision: 

Students are provided with an engaging and stimulating learning environment, where they grow a love and curiosity for Science and use their scientific and practical skills to become tomorrow’s Scientists. 

Our main aims are: 

  • To enable students to develop and build on their scientific knowledge and understanding across all key stages 
  • To instil curiosity and a love for Biology, Chemistry & Physics at KS3, KS4 & KS5 
  • To provide students with accessible and engaging lessons that encourage progress and increase attainment across all abilities 
  • To enable students to develop both their scientific and practical skills 
  • To encourage students to study STEM subjects in Higher Education and to prepare students for this 
  • To enable students to relate Science to their everyday life

We aim to ensure that students are given the experiences which will enable them to:

  • Gain the necessary knowledge and understanding to become confident citizens in an ever increasingly technological world
  • recognise both the usefulness and the limitations of scientific technique
  • realise that Science is relevant to many aspects of everyday life
  • continue their studies in a scientific field after they leave school, should they wish to do so
  • Science teaching focuses on student centred learning which encourages the development of scientifically literate students equipped to succeed in the twenty first century.

Courses Available:

  • A level Biology
  • A level Chemistry
  • A level Physics
  • BTEC Nationals in Applied Science (Level 3)

A-Level Physics

Why choose this subject:
Find out about quarks and the forces that control them.

Explore the structure of atoms and the powers that shape our world. Discover all about waves, energy, light and theories about the structure of the universe through this course.

Combine this course with:
Computing, Art, a Language.

Essential if you go on to:
Engineering, Design, Teaching, Research, Mechanics.

A-Level Biology

Why choose this subject?
Biology offers the opportunity to grapple with some of the more contentious issues of our day – cloning humans; genetic finger printing; in-vitro fertilisation, to name but a few. This is a highly rewarding and challenging course which will take you from the lab to theory and out into the field in your quest for information, explanation and results.

Combine this course with:
Chemistry, Physics, Maths, a Language, History.

Essential if you go on to:
Medicine, Research Work, Nursing, Teaching.

A-Level Chemistry

Why choose this subject?
If you are curious about the air you breath; what trainers are made of; how to make you own cosmetics; the chemicals in your prescription or the forensics used by the police, then this is your subject. You are interested in the very stuff of life. You are probably also ready to work very hard and manipulate complex scientific equipment.

Combine this course with:
Biology, Physics, Maths, English Literature, Art, Drama, Geography and History.

Essential if you go on to:
Medicine, Research Work, Journalism, Pharmacy, Optometry and Nutrition, Teaching.

BTEC Level 3 Applied Science

Why choose this course:

  • BTEC Nationals are widely recognised by industry and higher education as the signature vocational qualification at Level 3. 
  • BTEC Nationals provide progression to the workplace either directly or via study at a higher level. 
  • 62% of large companies have recruited employees with BTEC qualifications. 
  • Every year, over 100,000 BTEC students are accepted by over 150 UK universities and higher education institutes to pursue relevant degree programmes. 
  • You will develop practical, interpersonal and thinking skills required to be able to succeed in employment and higher education. 

Career Paths:

Careers as a science technician in a lab or progression on to a higher education qualification such as a HNC, HND or University degree.  

Students can go on to careers in: 

  • Optometry 
  • Nursing 
  • Radiography 
  • Pharmacy 
  • Engineering 
  • Biochemistry 
  • Veterinary Science 
  • Forensics 

why study this subject?


Students explore the complex and diverse ideas by providing opportunities to develop a greater understanding of biological facts together with an appreciation of their significance in the wider world. Students will undertake a detailed study of the mechanics of plant and animal life, both in theoretical and practical terms, as well as the physical and chemical structure, function, development and evolution of living organisms.  


Students appreciate that a knowledge and understanding of the principles of chemistry not only leads to a profound understanding of the natural world we live in, but also the man-made advancements we have made over time. Students will also understand the synthesis, formulation, analysis and characteristic properties of substances and materials. Students will recognise the complexity of different molecules and the composition of the world we live in. 


Students appreciate how, through the ideas of physics, the complex and diverse phenomena of the natural world can be described in terms of the fundamental concepts of field, force, radiation, particle structures and astronomy, which are inter-linked to form unified models of the behaviour of the material universe.
