Key Stage 4
Route 1: Triple Science GCSE Specification AQA Biology, Chemistry and Physics
This route is suitable for students who have a keen interest in science and have shown strong academic capabilities over their KS3 course. This route results in 3 GCSE’s in Biology, Chemistry and Physics. Over the two years your son will have lessons in each of the disciplines learning the foundations for further study at A-Level.
Route 2: Combined Science (Trilogy) AQA
This route prepares students to become scientifically literate. It also provides an foundation for further studies in Science and will be a suitable course for those wishing to study A-Levels or vocational courses in Science.
