Year 10 Schemes
Students in Year 10 follow the Pearson Edexcel Level 1/ Level 2 GCSE (9-1) in Combined Science. This enables students to achieve 2 Science GCSE's.
The GCSE course is assessed by a written exam consisting of 6, 1 hour 10 minute; papers are taken at the end of Year 11.

All students have 3 Science lessons per week. Those students who have taken the extra Science option have an additional 2 lessons per week.
The students are taught in groups that staff feel are most appropriate, taking into consideration their needs and strengths.
Students' progress is monitored throughout the year and all students will sit an end of year assessment. If, after this, staff feel that a more vocational Science course would be appropriate for some students in Year 11 this will be discussed with both the parents and student.
Staff will put a note in your child's diary to say which topic they are working on and will update you when the class start a new topic.
If you require any further information on what your child is learning please contact your child's Science teachers.
