From year 9 we strive to use lessons and homework task as opportunities to develop enjoyment of science through enquiry and collaborative work. The curriculum offers a range of task to help students develop competent communication, numeracy and team building skills.

Science groups are set by ability based on KS2 data, but every group and every student will learn through exploration and reflection, using primary and secondary sources. The curriculum explores the details of; Cells, Particles, Interdependence, Forces and Energy. Students will be encouraged to reflect on the applications of Science in technology and social contexts to help them engage with the importance of Science in society and inspire them to consider a career in Science.

Through the School’s association with Dorset STEM (Science Technology Engineering and Mathematics) the dedication and excellence of students in year 9 will be rewarded with additional enrichment opportunities.
