Some students are selected to progress onto the Triple Science pathway from September of Year 10. This is following key teaching and assessment points in Year 9. (See specific details in the Science KS3 section of the website.)

 This means that they will attain 3 GCSEs; one in Biology, one in Chemistry and one in Physics. For this to happen an additional third of a GCSE content for each discipline needs to be delivered and as a result lesson pace is quicker, with additional homework and a greater emphasis on independent learning.

The units covered in each GCSE are given below and full specifications can be found here: http://www.aqa.org.uk/subjects/science/gcse 

 Biology (8461)

 Chemistry (8462)

 Physics (8463)

Pupils are assessed by two 1hr 45min papers per GCSE at the end of the course. The papers not only test the content, but also the practical and mathematical ability of the students.

The assessment objectives are given below and are tested in the ratio 40%:40%:20%.

At the end of the course, pupils are awarded a 9-1 grade in each of the disciplines. This grade can be different for each discipline.

To support pupils through the course, pupils are required to purchase specific workbooks and optional revision guides which are available at reduced cost through the school.
