At Key Stage 4, students either take the Combined Science GCSE course (equivalent to two full GCSE subjects) or the three separate courses in Biology, Chemistry and Physics.
Also below are links to the AQA website for full course specifications.
To support students there are many resources available via the school network link.
Students from KLB often go on to study Medicine, Natural Sciences, Chemistry, Chemical Engineering, and many other disciplines.
Chemists are employed in a number of fields including developing new medicines, environmental protection, development of new foods and the petrochemical industry.
At Key Stage 3 pupils follow a Science course combining ‘Scientific Enquiry’ skills with subject content topics from Biology, Chemistry and Physics.
The scheme of work runs from Year 7 through to Easter of Year 9.
An integral part of the Year 13 course is fieldwork.
The students are encouraged to attend a residential course during the summer term of year 12 in order to develop understanding of ecology, biodiversity and conservation, ecological investigation techniques, statistical analysis and data interpretation skills.
Science is all about understanding how the Universe works.
Pupils at different ages will gain a deeper understanding of parts of this quest.
