In Key Stage 3 students receive four hours of Science a week, which includes Computer Science.  This time is split on a 3:1 ratio with students receiving two hours of Computer Science over a two-week period. Students follow a thematic approach to Science on a carousel of three weeks, rotating between each Science specialism.  Practical and investigative skills are embedded throughout the curriculum and theses are applied to real life contexts.


Our STEM Coordinator liaises between subjects, incorporating competitions and thematic learning between Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) to ensure that our students have a STEM-rich curriculum.
