Science is a core curriculum area and is delivered at all TMBSS centres across Shropshire. Pupils have the opportunity to develop and improve their scientific skills and understanding at every Key Stage, and it is the aim of the department to enter all eligible students for Science qualifications at GCSE level at the appropriate time. There is a consistent focus on delivering engaging lessons, and science teachers are encouraged to use a variety of teaching strategies to ensure that our pupils make excellent progress.
The Science curriculum supports development in scientific knowledge, practical skills, and conceptual understanding through the separate disciplines of Physics, Chemistry, and Biology. Students with a particular interest in Science or a desire to continue at A level have the opportunity to qualify in each discipline. The majority of students study the Edexcel GCSE Science course.
