Course Description

(Can be delivered as combined science or separate individual courses)

Teaching in the sciences in key stage 4 continues with the process of building upon and deepening scientific knowledge and the understanding of ideas developed in earlier key stages in the subject disciplines of biology, chemistry and physics.

Teachers will ensure that all pupils are taught essential aspects of the knowledge, methods, processes and uses of science.

At North Star School we will ensure that pupils are taught the learning outcomes and subject content required from the GCSE specification for the awarding body that the pupil’s main education provider will be using – whether that is focused on a combined science qualification or a single science from the disciplines.
