Science has something to offer every student

We aim to equip students with the skills and knowledge necessary to navigate the world with confidence.  We build on student’s innate curiosity and develop their enthusiasm for learning with both theoretical and practical work.  Our students are the scientists of the future and we strive to inspire them to greatness.

Chemistry Curriculum Overview

 

Key Stage 3
Long-term plans:
  • Year 7 – Long Term Plan – Chemistry
