All KS3 pupils have 3x 45 Minute periods of Science per week. We cover a wide base of topics from the three branches of Science and attempt to give a sound foundation for GCSE. In Yr8 & 9 we also deliver a ‘Numeracy in Science’ course to each class.
All Fort Hill pupils take a full GCCE Science course, regardless of their ability. Yr10 pupils have the option of sitting CEA Double Award Science, which provides a solid foundation for A-level Science and/or a STEM career. Those pupils who do not wish to take this option sit CEA Single Award Science. (N.B. Our current Yr12 students who opted for the extra GCSE Science have sat AQA Science A in Yr11 and are sitting AQA Additional Science).
