Science (Key Stage 3)
Our Science curriculum develops students’ ability to: use models to describe and explain key scientific concepts in order to gain sound awareness and understanding of the world they live in; apply knowledge and understanding of key scientific concepts in order to interpret scientific information; critically analyse and evaluate scientific information to draw conclusions; develop hypotheses and predictions based on scientific evidence and to test those hypothesis and predictions by performing investigations where they can collect valid, accurate and reliable data.
