    "The young people in our classroom are infinitely more significant than the subjects we teach." ~ Meladee Mcarty

    General Overview

    Science lessons aim to promote enthusiasm and curiosity throughout the curriculum. We have an established history of promoting and rethinking scientific literacy which help students to achieve their target grades. Unfamiliar vocabularies are emphasized on to further support their scientific literacy. The lessons are designed to include practical and educational trips relating to Chemistry, Physics and Biology.

    Key Stage 2

    Key Stage 2 Science focuses closely on the participation in practical Science activity and the development of individual student scientific thinking and analyses. This is achieved through encouraging relevant scientific questioning and then discovering how to answer those questions through experiments, tests, observations, and discussions.

    Key Stage 4

    There are two pathways for KS4 students in Science – the GCSE route (9 – 1) and the Entry Level Certificate (ELC Route).

    GCSE Science

    The GCSE Science three-year programme is tailored to meet the students’ ability level. Students receive a combined science grade based on the three subject units, Biology, Physics and Chemistry. The GCSE scheme of work includes education trips which compliment the curriculum.

    Entry Level Certificate

    The Edexcel Entry Level Certificate in Science curriculum we follow at Insights has been developed so it complements the GCSE (9-1) Sciences, and supports every student in their enjoyment of science and success in their studies. The course closely matches the programme of study and provides a progression route to GCSE

    Combined Science

    The certificate supports advancement in science by cementing core understanding and maximising engagement with the subject.
