However, GCSEs now have numerical grades from 1-9 awarded instead of the traditional lettered results.
They continue to study Biology, Chemistry and Physics related topics such as Light and the Electromagnetic Spectrum, Waves and Sound, Inheritance and Selection, Body Systems, Sustainable Development and Patterns of Reactivity.
Key stage 4 At GCSE students are given the option to choose a Science course which best suits their needs and interests.
Key stage 3 Science aims to stimulate students’ curiosity and enthusiasm and to develop a sense of wonder in Science.
Students are given the opportunity to develop skills in scientific methods as well as learning how to problem solve and work as part of a team.
Over the past few years we have taken Year 8 students on an annual beach clean as part of the shared education programme.
On this trip, students are given the opportunity to learn more about their local community and appreciate the importance of recycling and habitat conservation.
Both Year 9 and Year 10 students, in collaboration with other local schools, have taken part in workshops aimed at raising their awareness of Science in the real-world.
This year the Science department are embarking on a three-year joint project with Ulster Wildlife to find out more about endangered aquatic animals and explore methods of conservation.
My assignment was properly written, though it was a battle to get it completed as per the supervisor's requirements.
However, I still give credit to the team and the expert that worked on my assignment.
